JCI Airisto is the Junior Chamber International chapter for Turku, Kaarina, Paimio and Parainen. The Airisto chapter has existed since 1978, creating unmatched local and international networks for our members and partners. During this time we have witnessed many of our members, senators, honorary members and alumni (those who have been so called 'kicked out'). We pride ourselves in contributing to that through outstanding educational opportunities on leadership as well as through different courses and projects.
With the activities of Junior Chambers we also aim to achieve societal impact. The greatest achievement of the Airisto chapter is the creation of the concept of the 'TET-jakso', an opportunity for schoolchildren to get acquainted with working life. This concept is currently in use throughout Finland. All the same, we are a bunch of fun people, who like to do stuff together.
