Welcome to JCI Derry

The personal development network

We Make Connections

JCI Derry is a place that empowers young people to create positive change in themselves, their business or their community. It’s for those who care about our city and their future in it – all while having some fun.

We provide opportunities to improve personal skills that everyday working/personal life doesn’t normally offer, we facilitate involvement in community schemes that help develop how you teamwork, how you manage various tasks/people and how you deliver an overall project, all of which can be reapplied in a business scenario that will ultimately benefit you in your place of work or as part of your own venture.

Taking yourself out of your comfort zone is where you will learn a lot about yourself and your abilities.  Affiliated to the worldwide JCI organisation, JCI Derry offers opportunities to experience new people/places/cultures at local, regional, national and international events and would encourage members to offer a similar experience to others.

It’s all about

To gain cv-enhancing skills, give back to your community, network with business leaders/influencers, experience new cultures and have a lot of fun.

It’s time to get involved

Whether it’s through our local collaboration with UU Magee or as part of national Training Academies, you can count on training in JCI being practical, supportive, inexpensive, interactive and fun.

Starting out your own business??? We offer safe space for any questions (none of them are stupid!!!) as well as access to a network of key advice and mentors
