JCI Galway, Ireland
Realizing that many members were struggling to stay encouraged and active during the COVID-19 pandemic period, JCI Galway organized the project Effective Weekend to host a series of JCI leadership courses training sessions. In an effort to cultivate more future leaders for the local and national organizations, JCI members utilized latest video-conferencing technology to conduct and transform all the face-to-face training to the online versions, which also brought a new learning experience to the JCI trainers as well. Partnering with 6 trainers from 6 different countries, 4 local chapters in Ireland and members from over fifteen different countries, the Effective Weekend brought together a diverse group of people to continue learning and growing. A wonderful example of adapting to the changing world and ensuring that members still have access to training and development opportunities during these trying times.
