The JCI Twinning Program is a voluntary and reciprocal agreement between national organizations or local organizations in different countries, regions, or cities. The motivation to twin originates from the members in two national or local organizations who wish to establish a mutual understanding and friendship. The objective is to exchange personal visits, ideas, projects, and culture. With modern communication and transportation systems, distance is no longer an obstacle. For this reason, twinning is easier now than ever. The program formally links two or more JCI Organizations and provides a framework for members to participate in other cultures. They forge diverse connections that provide a unique perspective on the increasing interconnectedness of our world. These experiences produce a deep understanding of the importance of diversity and global cooperation.
