JCI Southampton is passionate about putting something back into the communities in which we live and work. It can be easy to forget that, even in a thriving city like Southampton, there are many people less fortunate than ourselves.
We recognise the importance of young people being active citizens and encourage members to take time to get involved in the community. Each year JCI Southampton runs a number of community projects and we are always looking for volunteers to join projects teams, creating opportunities to get involved with both practical & charitable fundraising activities on a local, national and international level:
JCI Southampton supports a number of local charities and each year we choose a local charity to support.
On a national level we also support JCI UK by working with The Prince’s Trust and the UN Global Compact and will be keeping members informed about upcoming activities and events.
Junior Chamber International as a worldwide organisation has pledged its support for Nothing But Nets, a charity that helps to fight Malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa, and JCI Southampton is an active supporter of this campaign.
Please contact our Community Director for more information about opportunities to support our community projects.
