Community

JCI Manchester 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 Manchester, 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 Manchester runs a number of community projects and we are always looking for volunteers to join projects teams, creating opportunities to get involved with practical and fund raising activities on a local, national and international level.

Since 2010 JCI Manchester has raised over £25,000 for charitable causes in the Manchester area.

For 2015 and 2016, JCI Manchester has selected three new charities to support to build on the previous fundraising success with Forever Manchester and Francis House. The team focus on a cross section of charities to support and this year have chosen Challenge 4 Change, Medequip 4 Kids and Action Against Hunger. With our three eager charity directors this year, Charlotte Brinsley, Emma Cottam and Simon Anderson, there is no doubt there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in our charitable activities and raise some much needed funds.

You can make a donation via the Virgin money page set up to support the three chosen charities here - otherwise stay tuned, and keep your eyes out across the year for one of the great activities coming your way! 

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 the Nothing But Nets, a charity that helps to fight Malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa, and JCI Manchester is an active supporter of this campaign.
