One of the key aspects of JCI activities is to bring together the different sectors of society. But sometimes it might be difficult to find the right partners to create positive impact in our communities. To address the issue of finding the right partners JCI Lahti has created a Partnership Strategy workshop. Thsi workshop walks participants through a process, which helps a local chapter to identiffy ways to create win-win situations with other organizations and find partners with matching values.

JCI Lahti has conducted the workshop in different regional JCI conferences in Finland over this autumn. On Monday evening we had the chance to participate in the workshop too as trainers from JCI Lahti came over to visit us. Thanks to the workshop our chapter now has clear understaning on how to identify collaboration opportunities with different organizations.  We were also left with various worksheets and tools we can use to format partnership proposals and chapter introductions.
