University of Leaders

JCI-Manila is the first and premier leadership organization established,
not only in the Philippines, but also in Asia.

Inauguration of JCI Manila's first-ever headquarters in Room 408 at the Regina Building in Escolta, Manila on May 11, 1948. Attended by more than fifty members, it marked the first JCI local organization in the Asia-Pacific to have its own clubhouse.


JCI MANILA is an organization where young men join to become better leaders. JCI MANILA believes that it is through reaching out to others that you learn more about yourself.

It auspiciously began with the curiosity of a young World War II veteran, the venerable Artemio L. Vergel de Dios, who read about the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) in the October 1946 issue of PIC Magazine and forthwith wrote the United States to inquire how a similar organization could be established in the Philippines.


We believe:

That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life
That the brotherhood of men 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 than of men
That earth's great treasure lies in human personality
That service to humanity is the best work of life


To be the leading global network of young active citizens.

JCI Mission
