Looking to meet other young people from around Iowa and have an impact in your community? Our organization gives young active citizens the tools and support they need to build the bridges of success in the areas of business development, management, leadership and personal training, community and government involvement. For over 80 years, the Junior Chamber has been the original organization of choice for young active citizens (ages 18-40) in Iowa, providing direction and leadership for our communities, our state, our world!
The JCI Active Citizen Framework describes a better way to create and measure positive change and sustainability in your community. It provides the structure we need to act as one global team and create a global impact.
I've had to keep rewriting my goals because of how the Junior Chamber helped me achieve so many of them.
