Junior Chamber International Oulu
Briefly in English
Junior Chamber International Oulu is an organization of young active adults in the Oulu area. JCI provides the framework for young active citizens to create sustainable impact in communities all over the world.
JCI Oulu was established in 1964 and we are part of the Junior Chamber International. With about 40 members and 20 trial members, we are one of the oldest and biggest chambers in Northern Finland. JCI is a nonprofit organization of young active citizens age 18 to 40 who are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities.
JCI Oulu gives possibilities for learning by doing, focusing on developing your professional skills from presentations and debating skills to strategic management and project management. Our chamber is well-known for Quality Project Management (QPM), a project management concept that we have developed in our chamber and according to which we manage our projects.
Our chamber is very active in organizing different kinds of projects, events and trainings. Some examples of our projects are Local Debating Championships, a family sports event called “Liikukko Nää?” and a growingly popular charity event after Christmas called ”Nuuttipukki”, in which children and families can donate their old toys to charity. We are also well-known among other chambers as an active organizer of trainings and JCI conferences.
We have two Twinning chambers abroad: JCI Glasgow and JCI Higashi Osaka. Meeting our Scottish and Japanese friends gives an international aspect to our JC activities.
On a national and international level the aim of our organization is to improve, educate and train its members, promote sustainable leadership, promote social responsibility and be a great network of young active adults.
We are young active citizens all over the world. Living, communicating, taking action and creating impact in our communities. Are you a young active citizen? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Join us on this journey of local action for global impact. Speaking little Finnish or English only is no problem!
