About JCI

Junior Chamber International, commonly referred to as JCI, is a non-profit international non-governmental organization of young people between 18 and 40 years old. It has members in about 124 countries, and regional or national organizations in most of them.
The first local Junior Chamber chapter was founded in 1915, but the international umbrella organization Junior Chamber International (JCI) was founded in Mexico in 1944. It has consultative status with the Council of Europe, with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and with UNESCO. It encourages young people to become active citizens and to participate in efforts towards social and economic development, and international cooperation, good-will and understanding.

Our Purpose
Joint Commission International (JCI) works to improve patient safety and quality of health care in the international community by offering education, publications, advisory services, and international accreditation and certification.

What are the standards of JCI?
JCI standards define the performance expectation, structures, or functions that must be in place for a hospital to be accredited by JCI. JCI’s International Patient Safety Goals are considered standards and are evaluated as are standards in the on-site survey.

How do I become a member of JCI? A JCI member may participate as an active member through the last day of the year in which he or she turns 40 years old. For example, if a JCI member turns 40 years old on December 1, 2018, he or she will be an active JCI member through December 31, 2018, and then be eligible to join the JCI Alumni Program.
