Journée Régionale de Formations au Bleu !

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… !

 

 

Joanne O’Riordan wins the Outstanding Young Person award

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.

Botswana: Early Childhood Development Vital

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 […]

Region hosts major event for young leaders

Members of Junior Chamber International (JCI) will celebrate the centenary of the JCI movement when they stage their national conference at the Holiday Inn, in Barnsley, from Friday November 20 to Sunday November 22.

It’s already turning into an international event as we have JCI members attending from Poland, Germany, Malta, Lithuania, Belgium and Serbia. The event builds on a strong history of JCI Yorkshire holding the national conference. Since 2006, different chambers in Yorkshire have held the event five times.” Yorkshire’s leading role in the revival of the JCI movement was recognised in 2012 when the global head of JCI visited the county.
