About Junior Chamber International Mauritius
Junior Chamber International Mauritius (JCI Mauritius) originally known as Jeune Chambre Economique de Maurice (JCEM) was officially set up in 1980, operating as a French local chapter and won its affiliation with JCI at the 1984 World Congress in Montreal, Canada, with two chapters: Curepipe and Port Louis.
Since then three more Local Chapters have been affiliated. Today, JCI Mauritius has around 200 members and is recognised at national and international levels as a model Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).
JCI is currently present in Mauritius as Junior Chamber International Mauritius and has 5 affiliated local chapters:
- JCI Beau-Bassin/Rose Hill
- JCI City Plus
- JCI Curepipe
- JCI Port Louis
- JCI Quatre Bornes
Building on local, national and international networks, we draw on the experience of JCI alumni who have succeeded in the various facets of life and who provide assistance when required. Representing countless occupations and skills, we are creative, bold leaders who are developing new skills, laying new foundations, and establishing new friendships and networks.
We believe in the advancement of the global community and the creation of positive change by improving ourselves and the world around us. We meet at local, national, and international events to exchange ideas and share best practices. We also learn from dynamic speakers and trainers at interesting and active seminars and presentations. We are growing personally and professionally because we are learning by doing, actively organizing projects and activities that benefit our communities and ourselves.
