Le jour J, laa Jeune Chambre Economique de Toulouse a su créer une ambiance conviviale propice aux échanges. Des jeux, des initiations, des tests, et démonstrations destinées aux petits et aux grands ont été proposés par les entreprises. 3 prix ont été décernés : Prix du Public: Emotion Tech Tout au long de la journée, les visiteurs ont voté pour leur entreprise préférée, décernant ainsi le Prix du Public qui a été remis par Toulouse Métropole. Prix CCI: Graine de Pastel Prix JCI: Alg & You La JCE de Toulouse a tenu également à remettre un prix « coup de cœur » à un jeune entrepreneur âgé de 18 à 40 ans en référence au thème national de l’association pour 2016 « La jeunesse est d’utilité publique ».

C’était le week-end dernier à BOULOGNE SUR MER; cette JRF en bord de mer a permis aux membres de se former à la Méthodologie et aux Joutes-débat. Un concours l’après-midi a permis à 4 équipes de s’affronter sur des sujets hautement sérieux comme « la mayonnaise est le seul exhausteur de goût de la frite », « les princes n’existent qu’au rayon biscuits » ou encore « le picard est le seul dialecte capable de rassemble les JCE des Hauts de France ». Une fois n’est pas coutume, parmi l’équipe gagnante il y avait Audrey, membre beauvaisienne ! Bravo la JCEB !! La JCE de Boulogne Côte d’Opale ayant organisé cette journée, après l’intronisation d’un nouveau membre (Amaury (Lille), lui aussi dans l’équipe gagnante !!) nous avons tous pu profiter d’un tarif avantageux à Nausicaa, le superbe aquarium suivie d’une présentation privée des travaux d’agrandissement de la structure. Deux soirées en gîtes à la campagne ont permis à tous de se reposer et surtout de s’amuser autour du barbecue. Finalement, le week-end au bleu était presque un week-end au vert où la convivialité était bel et bien au rendez-vous entre jaycees d’Amiens, Arras, Beauvais, Belgique, Boulogne, Lille, Reims, Valenciennes… !
When Erin Guillemette moved to Durham Region she didn’t know anyone. She went on a social media website meant to connect nearby people and she volunteered with the Whitby Santa Claus parade to get involved in the community. That’s where she learned about Junior Chamber International (JCI), a group she says “helps people be better.” When she first joined the local JCI chapter there were only five members. Within four years Ms. Guillemette became the president of the Durham chapter and the national vice president across Ontario. With Ms. Guillemette’s help, the #JCI Durham chapter has grown to 25 members. She’s a world champion public speaker, a member on the Whitby Chamber of Commerce and a Big Sister with the Big Brother Big Sister program. Ms. Guillemette is particularly passionate about promoting youth entrepreneurship and finding solutions to the region’s high youth unemployment rates.

Like 0 Tweet 0 Factfile Event JCI Asia Pacific Conference (ASPAC) 2015 Group size 3,557 delegates from 39 countries Organiser JCI Penampang local chapter with assistance from neighbouring chapters Venue Sutera Harbour Resort, Likas Stadium, Sabah Trade Centre Date June 11 to 14, 2015 The brief Every year, Junior Chamber International (JCI) members unite to exchange ideas and collaborate with other national organisations. This year’s Asia-Pacific conference theme was ‘ Aramai Tii ’ (meaning ‘the spirit of togetherness’) and delegates were encouraged to embrace the region’s different cultures while working on a number of social and sustainability projects. The conference also celebrated the 100th anniversary of the JCI movement and included an additional alumni programme. Challenges As a non-profit organisation, regional conferences are organised by volunteers and local chapter members in the chosen destination. In Sabah, where business events are largely focused on the domestic market, JCI members on the organising committee lacked experience in managing international delegates’ needs, such as the need for real-time translation. JCI regional managers and presidents made several visits to Kota Kinabalu in the lead-up to work with local members and offer support, while JCI Kuala Lumpur assisted in providing simultaneous translation booths. Sabah Tourism Board worked closely with JCI to coordinate visa approvals and provide delegates with pre-clearance through immigration. The MERS outbreak in South Korea also impacted delegate numbers and led to the cancellation of a South Korea-inspired social event. Execution Sutera Harbour Resort was used as the conference headquarters where the three-day trade show took place along with multiple workshops and training seminars, General Assembly meetings, the 100th Anniversary Forum, and a Hope Forum, dedicated to JCI’s Operation Hope. Le M é ridien Kota Kinabalu hosted the alumni programme of events, which included meetings and social functions. The Aramai Tii theme […]
Joanne is one of seven people in the world living with a rare medical disability known as Total Amelia Cork disability activist Joanne O’Riordan has won the Junior Chamber International Outstanding Young Person of the World Award for 2015. Ms O’Riordan was shortlisted for the award by public vote, receiving almost half of the 26,000 online votes for the award which honours individuals under the age of 40 who have contributed greatly to local and global communities. She was selected as the winner by a panel of judges for her contribution to children, world peace and human rights. The UCC student is one of seven people in the world living with a rare medical disability known as Total Amelia, meaning born without limbs. In 2011 Ms O’Riordan attracted a lot of media attention when she challenged the Government on cuts to disability allowance. Since then she addressed the UN at the International Telecommunication Union’s conference ‘Girls in Technology’ in New York in 2012. Her story formed the subject of a 2014 documentary ‘No Limbs No Limits’. She will travel to Kanazawa, Japan for the 2015 JCI World Congress in November. Commenting on her win, Ms O’Riordan said she was “blown away”, adding “to say I’m over the moon would be an understatement.” “For me this award is about highlighting the ability of every citizen irrespective of their disability. I want people to realise that people with disabilities can contribute to a wider society in a more positive and helpful way” she said.
Gaborone — Every nation must ensure that their children have the best quality education from an early age to develop and nature the future leaders of tomorrow at grassroots level. That will also be in accordance with the Ministry of Education and Skills Development’s mandate of ensuring that by the year 2018, every child would go through day-care and pre-school. Education minister, Dr Unity Dow, said this when officially opening the Morula Zac Day Care Centre in Gaborone West recently. The centre was donated by Zac Constructions, sought by Junior Chambers International Botswana (JCI) and the Morula Ward Village Development Committee (VDC). The minister appreciated the initiative, stating that it was through the spirit of volunteerism displayed by the VDC and JCI who made the dream possible through Zac Constructions Cooperate Social Responsibility to the community of Gaborone West. She added that parents, teachers, children and the community at large should be thankful that as they embarked on this project all the relevant stakeholders chose the education sector. Also, Dr Dow said there was a norm or perception that parents were not actively involved in their children’s education, hence lack of monitoring and checking of children’s progress in classrooms. She urged them to play a vital role, make sufficient contribution and be part of their children’s educational journey, so as to appreciate their weaknesses and strengths at an early age. For his part, Member of Parliament for Gaborone Bonnington South, Mr Ndaba Gaolathe stated that students should strive to be the best that they can be, adding that hard work, determination and success is brought by a good educational background, to have a bright future. He said, “education is the gate way to greatness and it is one attribute that no one can take away from you, and children […]
