Who We Are

We are young active citizens who are members of Junior Chamber International. We are committed to making an impact by creating positive change in our communities in Ibadan. We believe that a more peaceful and progressive world can be achieved through active Citizenship; individuals assuming responsibility to solve problems in our immediate communities.

Dear Active Citizens,

Greetings and a Happy New Year; May 2023 be filled with great successes for us all!

I would begin by thanking all past presidents and board members, who paved the way and made JCI Ibadan Elite what it is today for us to continue with the good work. 

A special thank you goes to my predecessor, Goodness Morakinyo for his immense commitment, hard work throughout 2022 and for his undying support as we continue on the journey.

Myself and the newly elected board promise nothing but commitment to serving you and making sure that JCI Ibadan Elite’s flag keep flying high.

This year is all about how we can grow together and help others considering the 5 key areas of JCI: training, social, business, community and international. 

With this, our focus will be to
1. Build on projects/programmes that give greater value to members and enhance the member experience. 

2. Launch and improve on initiatives that will build better synergy among members. 

3. Increase membership engagement and membership benefits

4. Innovate/Create valuable events and other actions that will raise JCI Ibadan Elite’s brand 

Lastly, I believe that when people join groups where opportunities abounds, the potential for the opportunities to be utilized becomes more real. With that, I am excited and look forward to engaging with each and every one of you, as we begin to expand the possibilities for developing leaders for a changing world.

My best wishes,

JCIN Amb. Lanre Alawode
2023 President-JCI Ibadan Elite.

Adopt A School

Members of JCI Ibadan Elite found a government-owned primary school in our community which was in a deplorable state. We immediately flung into action, meeting with stakeholders and they all identified the same needs which we put on a scale of priority and charted the plan for our intervention. Our conclusion was to “Adopt-the-School”.

The Elite Club

In line with the United Nations sustainable development goal 4 on quality Education, JCI Ibadan Elite established clubs in different secondary schools in a bid to instill the culture of active citizenship in pupils and cause a behavioral change that could prepare them as trustees for the future of our committees.

Hangout With The Elites

Since its first edition on March 11, 2019, “HANG OUT WITH THE ELITES” has provided a platform for reaching out to our immediate community with a view to enrolling new members.

It brings together potential and intending members of JCI in addition to existing members of JCI Ibadan Elite……
