Junior Chamber International is a leadership training organization for young professionals, entrepreneurs and community members. We want to help you develop as an individual and to help better your community.

As a member of JCI Penticton, you are exposed to training opportunities at the chapter level, regional level and national level. Many of our trainings at the Penticton Chapter level are open to the public for a small fee. Watch our events calendar for upcoming public trainings.

Each year, in February or March we hold our annual Effective Speaking Training. This aids those who attend in becoming a more confident and effective public speaker. For members, this training is also preparation for the Effective Speaking Competition. This competition is held at the chapter level, and the winner goes on to compete at the regional level. The winner of the BC-Yukon Region goes on to compete at the National Convention, held each year in September.

Other types of trainings done by JCI Penticton in the past include:

  • Robert’s Rules of Order
  • Grant Writing for Non-Profits
  • Sustainability
  • Acrylic Painting
  • SUP Yoga and Paddleboarding
  • How to Tap a Keg and Pour Beer Properly
