The purpose of Junior Chamber, inspired by its Declaration of Principles:
To contribute to the advancement of the global community by providing the opportunity for young people to develop the leadership skills, social responsibility, entrepreneurship and fellowship necessary to create positive change.
The organization operates on the premise that the development of individual character and personality will result in communities that are better developed and, eventually, in a more peaceful world.
Most educational institutions focus on the passing of an examination and the amassing of degrees rather than the development of personalities. It is said the purpose of education is to prepare the individual for “life,” not just to be able to perform a job. Life is much more than just doing a job. Life is caring, sharing, loving, understanding and communicating.
