    (Inspiring Students to be Motivated, Assertive, Responsible and Transformative)

    i-Smart – for Millennials Leadership (Millennials is 21st Century’s youth
    generation aged 18-35 years)

    Millennials—one of the largest generations in history—have the power to
    completely transform society.

    Raised during a time of technological change, globalization and economic
    disruption, this next generation of active citizens has had different
    experiences that guide their behaviors and decisions.

    Millennials challenge many of today’s traditional business practices. The
    millennial generation isn’t attracted to the money or recognition associated
    with leadership positions. Rather, they want to be leaders to inspire others,
    make a difference in the world and lead companies/ organization that care
    about more than the bottom line.

    These young people are JCI’s future members, therefore it is critical to
    understand who they are, what motivates them and how to best engage them
    in creating positive change. Millennials are looking for a space to collaborate
    with others on meaningful work that will make an impact. JCI can be that
    place.

    To craft their skills and channelize the mammoth energy of youth in right
    direction, JCI India has launched three years certificate course named i-
    Smart for college going students. The course has been designed to Inspire
    students to be Motivated, Assertive, Responsible and Transformative.

    i-Smart Concept

    Although a strong background in traditional “hard” skills like writing,
    mathematics and science will always have its place in academic and career
    worlds, an increasing number of employers desire prospective employees
    with “soft” skills.

    Soft skills include the ability to adapt to changing circumstances and the
    willingness to learn through experience, and are applicable across multiple
    disciplines and careers. It is important for students to develop soft skills as
    they prepare for college and as they graduate and enter the workforce. The
    courses offered in i-Smart are designed to develop the “soft skills” in the
    students.

    i-Smart a three year JCI India Certified Course will be offered to the senior
    college students of all the streams. This is the value based education for the
    students, which will be pursued in all the three years of their graduation. The
