2016 JCI USA National Summit


JCI USA National Summit gives members the opportunity to work with other organizations, businesses and partners to build resolutions creating positive change in the world.  This conference also provides the tools young people need to understand how government works and how to work it to a chapter's advantage. Elected officials can be a chapter's best friend when it comes to finding projects to undertake and the resources to accomplish them.  

We spend the day hearing from amazing  speakers on important topics facing today's young people.


The 2016 JCI USA National Summit will focus on these topics:


Build on the momentum for climate action. Climate change poses a threat to virtually every aspect of human endeavor.


Health and Wellness. Discussing eradication of disease. A focus on health and well-being in general.


Poverty and Homelessness. Collaborating with organizations to work towards root causes and eradication.


Harness the data revolution for sustainable development. Good data is the foundation for good policies, programs, and decisions that can solve global problems. We must work together to close data gaps, improve data collection, and harness the data we have to advance sustainable development.


Grow the community working for global change. Sticking with the status quo won't solve global problems -- we need new ideas and new partners.


Prioritize the rights and needs of girls and women. Empowering girls and women is not only a human rights obligation, it is key to advancing sustainable development. The new Sustainable Development Goals framework enshrines this notion, recognizing that progress for girls and women will drive progress for everyone.
