JCI St. Vincent, also known as St. Vincent Jaycees is a youth development organization that has been serving our communities for over 60 years. The Organization’s vision is to be the leading global network of young active citizens and its Mission is to provide development opportunities that empower young
people to create positive change.
This year, the Peace is Possible Committee, chaired by JCI Member Mr. Nick Francis, will execute three
main activities under the theme: “With Everyone a Leader, Peace is Possible”.
This theme reinforces the
importance of personal responsibility towards achieving Peace in our homes, communities, workplaces,
institutions and organizations. It also opens up an important discussion on the type of traits, characteristics, skill-sets and values that are necessary towards developing Peace Leaders.
Firstly – Jaycees members including past presidents, alumni, senators and others will produce short video
presentations on the important values and character traits that are necessary to be a Peace Leader. This
will reflect the project theme which is “With Everyone a Leader Peace is Possible”. These videos will be
posted on the JCI St. Vincent Facebook Page and Instagram Account leading up to Peace is Possible Day
which is celebrated on Monday 21st September, 2020.
Secondly – JCI St. Vincent will launch its Peace is Possible Art Competition which is open to Primary and
Secondary School Students and will run from Monday 31st August to Sunday 20th September.
