The Junior Chamber International Ten Outstanding Young Persons of Nigeria (JCIN TOYP) program honours ten outstanding young people under the age of 40 each year.
These individuals exemplify the spirit of the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Mission, and they serve as stellar examples of entrepreneurial spirit and ethical leadership. Whether through business, scientific endeavours or their impact on society, these young active citizens turn challenges into opportunities on a local and national level. The final ten TOYP nominees were honoured during the 2021 International Youth Day celebration held at Ibadan, Oyo State.
Each of the inspiring TOYPs will serve as brand ambassador for JCI Nigeria. As they continue to overcome unique challenges, they not only bring awareness to their own personal goals but shine a spotlight on the JCI mission as well, thanks to their thorough understanding of JCI’s goals to develop enterprising young leaders for this fast-changing world through the four areas of opportunity. Their mission will be, over the course of the next 12 months, to use their aura and networks to enhance JCI’s brand awareness and visibility, recruit new members, motivate existing ones and open doors to new corporate partners.
- Open to outstanding young people under the age of 40;
