JCI Tg Aru developing young leaders in turbulent 2021
KOTA KINABALU: Junior Chamber International (JCI) Tanjung Aru aims to provide opportunities and impact 1,000 young people in Sabah through their 2021 development activities.
This is aligned with the Plan of Action of JCI Tanjung Aru 2021 President Dr Jeremy Tong and his Board of Directors who will be installed during the upcoming 2021 JCI Tanjung Aru 40th Installation and Awards Banquet to be held on April 17 at Hilton Hotel here. The esteemed guest of honour is the CEO and Founder of G&A Group, Dato George Lim.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world drastically since last year, and will continue to affect activities and livelihood this year 2021. JCI Tanjung Aru’s activities revolve around ‘Developing Young Leaders for this Changing World’, whilst collaborating with other organizations to create bigger sustainable impact.
Despite the pandemic, 2021 JCI Tanjung Aru President Dr Jeremy emphasizes that their activities will continue to impact in all their four areas ie: Business & Entrepreneurship, Community Action, Individual Growth and International Cooperation.
Dr Jeremy says, “As a medical practitioner, it’s my responsibility that the community activities this 2021 will be aimed towards curbing the spread of Covid-19 and increasing awareness on the Covid-19 vaccination. This will be done through our flagship project Red Saver and its team.”
Alongside this, JCI Tanjung Aru will be launching their new flagship project this 2021
– ‘Entrepreneur Connect Group (ECG)’, which creates a thriving community for entrepreneurs to learn and grow their business together. This is aligned with JCI World’s direction this 2021 to recover the local economy through entrepreneurship development.
