Purna Caraka Muda Indonesia (PCMI) was established in 1977 by the alumni of International Youth Exchanges (PPAN, Pertukaran Pemuda Antarnegara) programmes, organised by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. Activities at the national level are conducted by the national committee in Jakarta, whereas the provincial PCMI is responsible for activities organised in the respective provinces.

PCMI Jawa Barat has been for many years the main partner of the Provincial Government of West Java in organising the selection process of PPAN programmes. Nowadays, PPAN programmes in West Java are carried out under the auspices of the West Java Office of Youth and Sport.

Apart from actively participating in the selection process of PPAN programmes, PCMI Jawa Barat is also engaged in a wide range of international events focusing on youth development, such as ASEAN University Student Conference (AUSC), International Youth Forum (IYF), Asian-African Conference commemoration, Asian-African Youth Forum (AAYF), etc.

PCMI Jawa Barat is currently chaired by Gellar Ramadhan, alumnus of the 2012 Indonesia-Malaysia Youth Exchange Programme.
