In order to use the creative potential fully and efficiently, to train young entrepreneurs, to assist the solution of social - economic and other essential problems facing the Republic of Armenia, in October 1997 Non - governmental organization (NGO) Armenian Junior Chamber (AJC) was established.
AJC has become a member of the Junior Chamber International (JCI) since 1997. JCI trains worldwide leaders. JCI has 200.000 members from 104 countries. It has its representatives in UN. Its relations with EU, EC and KAPE (Kansas Association of Public Employees) expand.
The Basic Objectives of the Armenian Junior Chamber are:
• provide protection of the young citizens' rights, promote their entrepreneurial activity;
• create conditions for the development of young people, provide minimum guarantee for the social services of the young citizens;
• support talented young people as well as junior unions and make the relations among young people more active.

It gives new chances to our young people, chances, which have been accessible to young people of European countries. The basic objective of our program is to create new chances for the young to enjoy discounts through all over the Europe and to develop a youth policy in the spheres of culture, tourism and information.
