Who We Are: JCI Kelowna is a group of young active citizens who strive to grow as individuals while positively impacting our community, Kelowna, BC.
JCI Kelowna is affiliated with Junior Chamber International (JCI); a worldwide federation of young leaders, between the ages of 18-40. The organization has been referred to as the premier leadership development organization for young people, and being a member of JCI Kelowna allows you to gain access to national and international opportunities.
JCI Kelowna has a decorated history dating back to 1935 as one of Kelowna's premier community service groups. Over the last 80 years, thousands of young men and [as of Jan 2016] women in Kelowna have been a part of a dynamic group that has given them the opportunity to grow personally and professionally, and more importantly, have an avenue to give back to the community.
Among our many community projects, we are best known for our work in transforming the former Glenn Avenue School into the "Kelowna Jaycees Downtown Youth Centre" where the Okanagan Girls and Boys Club run many youth programs and offer the only youth shelter located between Vancouver and Calgary.
