What does Community mean in JCI?

There are five areas of opportunity in JCI, Business International, Social, Training and Community.

Community can mean a number of different things;

  1. As a member of JCI you are part of local, national and global network of young active citizens
  2. The local community where you live

However, in JCI community its about 'providing our members with opportunities to develop community responsibility'.
