Our Deputy President, Niina Merilaita participated in the JCI European Academy in Sweden in mid-August.

She was the first-ever representative from JCI United to take part in the academy representing JCI Finland, Not to forget that only a few people get chosen to go from each national organization.

JCI European Academy is a four-day intensive leadership and teamwork training during which local aspiring leaders from all over Europe learn and test their boundaries together while also having great fun!

“In the academy, we learned that everyone can be a good leader. To become great, you need to be open, know yourself, and try to enable your team’s success! The biggest token from the academy was the common JC-spirit of all the participants and also the new amazing people I met there”, tells Niina.
