JCI (Junior Chamber international) is the organization that thrives on providing development opportunities to young people to empower them to create positive change. This is the vision that JCI and all it’s members live by every day. JCI Sweden and the local organizations were no exception this year, creating an impact in their local communities. We would like to celebrate the work of 2018:
JCI Göteborg has organized a project ”Torknonan” for young people that want to start a business, but has no idea where to start. During the project, 3 trainings have been conducted: first training was about crystallizing your idea for business, second training was about the finances and legal part of starting a business, and the final training was to present your business idea to others. The project was free of charge and has inspired a few people for impact, aka join the organization.
Next to couple of big events that JCI Halmstad has organized this year (a long running JCI Crayfish Conference and JCI Sweden National Convention), local organization has not stopped there and organized a yearly impact project for the community – Christmas present project.
