Who are the JCI?

The JCI Greater Muskegon (Junior Chamber International) is a chapter of the JCI -- a nonprofit organization not affiliated with any particular religion or political party. Comprised of young active citizens age 21 to 40 who are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities. Active citizens are individuals invested in the future of our world. JCI gathers active citizens from all sectors of society. We develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions and take action.

Our programs emphasize the development of the individual member’s leadership and managerial skills through the running of projects that benefit our community and the JCI movement as a whole.  As a member our chapter, you will also be a member of the Michigan JCI organization.

The JCI Greater Muskegon Chapter meets monthly in to build connections and community. Notable JCIs include Kofi Annan, Bill Clinton, Gerald R. Ford, John F. Kennedy, Tom Monaghan, Elvis Presley, Al Gore, Charles Lindbergh, Ted Turner, and Warren Burger.

How is JCI different from other nonprofits?

JCI members take initiative to solve local challenges. More than a one-time donation or service opportunity, we focus on sustainable impact locally and globally. It only takes one active citizen to change the world. Be that active citizen today.


The JCI Greater Muskegon Chapter aims to build personal and professional relationships as we work together on projects to strengthen and grow the Greater Muskegon community. We hope to add new members to increase the popularity of our shared interests. It is our shared vision that we become the largest and best JCI chapter in the State of Michigan.

“Muskegon JCIs offer a great way for newcomers in the area to get acquainted to Muskegon and for native Muskegonites to rally around their community.”
