Member of the Month
THE VISION: To participate and celebrate in the success of the new South Africa by contributing to the development of her people, and ultimately creating the love and peace she so richly deserves.
THE MISSION: To become the ultimate platform for leadership development , at all levels of society, in South Africa.
Business Owners: Junior Chamber is the biggest international Business Network for young Entrepreneurs in the world. It is our mission to create future leaders, and we believe we are the most relevant organization to do this in business.
Working People: The working people of our country need the opportunity to better themselves and contribute to there communities. We believe that Junior Chamber offers them the best opportunities.
Disadvantaged communities: More than half our population live in disadvantaged communities. It is not fair to label them as helpless. They are as capable as any other Human Being. Junior Chamber wishes to offer the opportunity for self and community development to these very special people.
Students: We are flushing out 1000 of graduates every year, but there is little guarantee for work. There is only employment for about 20% of our annual turn out of University, Technicn & Collage graduates. Junior Chamber can assist in equipping these valuable members of our country, with the leadership and entrepreneurial skills to offer them a wider scope of opportunities.
Our Members: One of the things that makes Junior Chamber unique, is itís focus on the development of itís members. Better leaders mean a better future.
Children: Children are the future. We want to help prepare them to become better leaders and make their future as bright as possible.
Previously Disadvantaged Communities: Due to the Old South Africa, we have millions of citizens who are uneducated and do not understand the simplest of things that we often take for granted. Everyone who benefits from the wealth of this country has the responsibility to help these wonderful people, live a better life.
Government: For years Junior Chamber International has been responsible for developing Heads of States (John F Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, USA; Jacques Chirac, France; Poul Schluter, Denmark; Yasuhiro Nakasone, Japan and Jan Kryzsztof Bielecki; Poland) and members of governments and parliaments throughout the world. JCSA hopes to prepare the future leaders of our wonderful country.
The environment: The mother of all mothers, Planet Earth. She and all the life she bears is the closest thing to perfection we will ever encounter, yet we destroy her as if she had no worth. We owe her everything.
