JCI Manila, formerly known as the Manila Jaycees, is a premiere leadership development organization that empowers young people to become better leaders and create positive change in a community by spearheading projects anchored to aiding the government in community development, encouraging entrepreneurship, protecting the environment, and responding to disasters.
Since 1947, JCI Manila has been committed in developing young leaders and making positive change in the nation. JCI Manila is the first and premier leadership development organization in Asia and last year, it was recognized as the Most Outstanding Local Organization in the World – besting over 5,000 Junior Chamber International chapters worldwide. This 2016 ushers in a new board of directors as JCI continues its mission under the leadership of Ramiro N. Villavicencio as president.
For this year, JCI Manila is set to create positive change with highlight on its project dubbed The Sea of Life Program. This project started last 2011 and has been focused on reef rehabilitation such as reef deployment through artificial domes that are dropped in damaged reefs, as well as coral transplantation to help revitalize marine life in affected areas. The project has been practiced nationwide and the organization is committed to expanding its reach to various coastal communities. Another project that JCI Manila is focusing on is the Ramon V. Del Rosario Award, an award giving body that recognizes exemplary individuals who have significantly contributed to nation building. Lastly, one of the newest projects on their table is Golden Heart that aims to help children with cerebral palsy by providing them with treatment and care to help enrich their lives.
