This mission finds basis
That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather of men;
That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality; and
That service to humanity is the best work of life.
The JCI Values, which is universal in its perception and exhortation, sees man not only in the light of what he is but what he can be. The earth’s great treasure lies in the human personality and that service to humanity is the best work of life.
“It is in this context and spirit that the TOYM award was conceived. If it is idealistic, it is because man must have his idealism if he has to shape for himself a better future, a better world.
The Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) Awards is now in its 60th year. The Awards began as a project of JCI Manila, patterned after the TOYM of America Awards, and later adopted by the JCI Philippines as an annual project. It is now a yearly undertaking of the JCI Philippines and co-sponsored by the PLDT, Gerry Roxas Foundation, Inc. and the TOYM Foundation, Inc.
Over the years, the TOYM has become an institution, having developed a reputation for its selectiveness of outstanding young active citizens upon whom the award is conferred. TOYM seek to give national recognition to young men and women whose selfless dedication to their profession or vocation has resulted in significant contributions to the welfare of their countrymen and our country as large, as well as to the advancement of their respective fields of endeavour. The awardees who have become light of the nation totalling 503 by now, is literally a Philippine ”Who’s Who “ in outstanding achievements in areas such as agricultural science, arts and humanities, banking business, law, business, community development, educational business, government service, political and social sciences, journalism and mass communication, sports, medicine, economics, science technology and engineering and other fields of endeavour.
1. To recognize the outstanding achievement of our nation’s young active citizens which have resulted to positive changes in the nation;
2. To focus public attention and confer nation recognition to these contributions and positive changes;
3. To inspire others, especially the young active citizens with the recognition to these achievements and/or leadership of the TOYM awardees- leaders who have demonstrated vigour and enterprise in tackling the problems of society and offering sustainable solutions; and

While other awards give recognition purely to humanitarian work, the TOYM Awards is uniquely given for the outstanding leadership and excellence and contributions to humanity.
