On November 16, Junior Chamber International (JCI) Makati partnered with its sister chapter – JCI Makati Princess Urduja – to host a joint training for 2 of JCI’s training programs: “JCI Achieve” and “JCI Impact”. The training was held at the Ramen Metro, where JCI Makati holds its weekly HUB Night.
New and incoming JCI Makati and MPU members were welcomed by JCI Makati 2018 Local Training Director Reynard Francisco. He opened the event by giving the floor to the participants to introduce themselves to the group. JCI Makati 2018 LO President, Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales, also gave a few minutes of inspirational talk to encourage the participants to actively participate in JCI initiatives.
The training started with “JCI Achieve” – a training course that introduces current and prospective members to the values and principles of JCI, and their role in establishing their Local Organization’s (LO) identity. It also touched on the mission and vision of JCI, and discussed the needed activities that will help them create positive social change. The “JCI Achieve” training was conducted by Zaira Tumang, 2016 JCI MPU Executive Vice President.
Up next was the “JCI Impact” training, which was facilitated by Ms. Xialen Antonio, also from JCI MPU, and current Area Training Director of JCI Area 2. “JCI Impact” covered the process of creating sustainable community projects as JCI members – with topics such as the concept of active citizenship and community needs assessment. The training also emphasized the need for projects to have long-term impact and sustainable implementation.
The event concluded with a raffle, as well as announcement of future joint projects between the two sister chapters.
