Our working groups

All of our projects and events are planned and carried out by our four working groups. These groups meet once a month to discuss current projects and just like our monthly meetings, these groups provide our members with an opportunity for exchange.


  • Working group for entrepreneurship

    • The JCI Leipzig working group for entrepreneurship is mainly aimed at potential and existing founders as well as ambitious businesses who want to establish a stronger position on the market.
       
      Thanks to the vast number of projects, members are given the chance to get involved and gain experience. The working group’s motto is: Engagement and Entrepreneurship for a healthy society.
       
      The JCI Leipzig’s working group for entrepreneurship meets every third Thursday of the month at 19:30 at the pub and restaurant Schrebers on Aachener Strasse.


  • Working group for politics, education and social affairs

    • The working group for politics, education and social affairs functions in a very particular way i.e. as a bridge builder. These are bridges which point towards the future and connect the key social issues of politics, education and social affairs. In doing so, the work of this group is not limited to claims, warnings or suggestions.
       
      Our work is about effective trade, which benefits all those involved. This is realised through projects, series of talks, training and through involvement in regional and national development.
       
      Our working group meets – with some exceptions – always on the third Wednesday of the month at 18:00 in the pub and restaurant Lottenstein on Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse 63 in Leipzig.


  • Working group for communication

    • The working group for communication is responsible for the internal and external communication of the JCI Leipzig. This includes working with the press, public relations, the creation of advertising material, communicating with members via newsletter or social media and the organisation of local events. This working group therefore supports JCI Leipzig and other working groups in terms of organisation, content and strategy.

       

      The working group always meets together with the international working group on the second Monday of the month at 19:00 in different locations. Anybody interested in taking part is very welcome to come along.


  • International working group

    • Topics relating to international affairs are the main focus of the international working group. Exchange with regard to the promotion of mutual cultural understanding is given particular attention. For this reason, once a year we hold an event known as Expat Lounge at Club International and devote the entire evening to a chosen country and its national characteristics, with speakers, cultural contributions and as many expatriates present as possible. Alongside the organisation of intercultural training, the maintenance of existing national and international twinning partnerships is also one of our responsibilities.

       

      Our annual charity projects are also a particular highlight, including the Running Dinner and our participation in the charity flea market in aid of St. Marys School in India.

       

      We are always pleased to welcome new faces with a keen interest in our working group and warmly invite you to come by and take a look!

       

      We usually meet togehter with the working group communication every second Monday of the month at 19:00 in different locations.
