About Us

How It All Began!

Junior Chamber International (JCI) is a worldwide federation of young leaders and entrepreneurs with nearly five lakh active members and millions of alumni spread across more than 115 countries.

  • JCI orgin can be traced back to 1915 to the city of St. Louis, Missouri, USA where Sir Henry Giessenbier with 32 other young men established Young Men's Progressive Civic Association (YMPCA)
  • In 1916, the name was changed from YMPCA to "Junior Citizens", commonly called "JCs", which later became "Jaycees"
  • Their work so impressed the St. Louis Junior chamber of Commerce that they asked these young men in 1918 to adopt the name “Junior Chamber of Commerce” which later became “Junior Chamber”
  • By 1944, the movement had spread through 18 countries officially forming "Junior Chamber International", welcoming people between age 18 and 40 years

JCI Believes in

  • That faith in god gives meaning and purpose to human life,
  • That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations
  • That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise
  • That government should be of laws rather than of men
  • That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality
  • And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
