What is JCI Edinburgh?

JCI Edinburgh is a place where you #InvestInYourself.

We are a voluntary organisation run by its members for its members. Our vision is “to provide outstanding personal development opportunities in a fun and relaxed atmosphere within the Edinburgh area.”

We are part of the global JCI, an organisation of young active individuals aged 18 to 40 who are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities. The impact and importance of the development spectrum provided by JCI is demonstrated by the large number of JCI members who have held high positions in their respective countries and international bodies (for example Kofi Annan - former U.N. Secretary General; J.F. Kennedy – former President of the United States and many more).

JCI has a vision to be the leading global network of young active citizens and we plan to accomplish this through providing development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change. This means we run projects and programmes where you can get involved to help develop your own skills and experience but also to develop other members of JCI or people in your community.
