What is TOYM?
The Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) Awards is now in its 58th year.
It is a yearly undertaking of the JCI Philippines and co-sponsored by PLDT, Gerry Roxas Foundation and the TOYM Foundation.
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 award is conferred. TOYM seeks 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 well as to the advancement of their respective fields of endeavor.
The awardees who have become light of the nation, totalling 492 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 endeavor.

To inspire others, especially the young active citizens with the recognition of these achievements and/or leadership of the TOYM awardees – leaders who have demonstrated vigor and enterprise in tackling the problems of society and offering sustainable solutions; and
To live the JCI values and consider these as a good measure of performance by the awardee.
While other awards give recognition purely to humanitarian work, the TOYM Awards is uniquely given for outstanding leadership and excellence and contributions to humanity.
