Junior Chamber International (JCI) is all about making a change
We all have things we would like to change and improve in ourselves, our career or in our community. JCI is the place to start that change. With like-minded active citizens you can easily try out your ideas, grow and learn together. Through trial and error, and sometimes by trying harder together, you can discover your talents and grow as a person!
What do we offer?
We support our members in networking and growing their talents through fun projects, interesting training sessions and memorable events. We value our community and want to contribute to its wellbeing. In our yearly projects we encourage our young entrepreneurs to lead by example by believing and realizing ones dreams. Before the Christmas holidays we also organize a Christmas tree –project where people can buy Christmas presents to children of low-income families in the greater Kuopio area.
Members can train a variety of different skills including management, negotiation and communication. Should members be willing, they also have a possibility to work as a trainer! Board members of JC Kuopio have a chance to practice important management and board working skills in positions that last one year at a time. JC Kuopio offers variety of activities and tasks to do and in the same time you make friends and create networks that can later benefit you in working life.
In addition to JCI congresses and conferences around the world we want also to contribute to our own community by making it more international. We want to offer a possibility to meet people from different cultures, practice English skills and find foreign talents here in Kuopio. We will be hosting relaxed Kuopio International Network meetings and we wish to see you building up the culture of International Kuopio. Follow the Kuopio International Network also at FB and join the meetings!
