Recommendations

JCI Da Lat has the most connected brotherhood due to engaging group activities.

The "Passion Sport - JCI Da Lat Empower You" program is facilitating the process of connecting members by using soccer as a medium to help JCI BOD, JCI members, and young citizens build the connection joyfully and healthfully. The brotherhood in JCI Da Lat is developed not only in sports, but also in diverse group activities, such as camping, fieldtríp, training ... As a result, JCI Da Lat BOD & members, and volunteers are united and can work in future projects and events with a collective leadership and teamwork.

In the future, we would love to expand the connection activity to other sports, such as: tennis, golf, running ... So other member can choose their favorite sports to participate and connect.
