Junior Chamber International (JCI) is a non-profit international non-governmental organization of young people between 18 and 40 years old. It has members in about 124 countries, and regional or national organizations in most of them. It has consultative status with the Council of Europe, with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and with UNESCO. It was founded in St Louis in 1915. It encourages young people to become active citizens and to participate in efforts towards social and economic development, and international co-operation, good-will and understanding. Its members are called JCI Members. It publishes JCI World, a quarterly magazine, in six languages. It holds an annual conference, the JCI World Congress, in November of each year, and regional annual meetings, the JCI Area Conferences.
From within the walls of the soul of this organization wherein the foundation of character and good citizenship are laid, I hope a message will come in the sometime of tomorrow that will stir the people towards the establishment of a permanent and everlasting world peace. - Henry Giessenbier (1892-1935).
Some members of JCI are given life membership of the organization and become "senators." The JCI Senate was founded in 1952 in Melbourne, Australia; most countries with a Junior Chamber International also have an affiliated JCI Senate organization. "JCI Senators display determination and leadership and are encouraged to stay connected and provide support throughout the entirety of their lives."
Members of JCI are National Organizations divided in four areas. Areas are: The Americas, Europe, Africa and Middle East, and Asia and the Pacific.
