Top Outstanding Young Person (TOYP)
JCI TOYP serves to formally recognize young people who excel in their chosen fields and create positive change. By recognizing these young people, JCI raises the status of socially responsible leaders in this world. The honorees motivate their peers to seek excellence and serve others.
Since 1983, JCI has honored over 200 individuals from 47 nations. Past recipients of national awards include such well-known personalities as John F. Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Elvis Presley, Jackie Chan, Wayne Gretzky and many more, all named before the age of 40 and before they had achieved national prominence. Honorees selected in past years have represented the heights of progress in numerous human endeavors. Many have gone on to even greater achievements. All have continued to serve humanity in a great variety of ways.
In 2014, one of the JCI West Indies nominees submitted by JCI Barbados, Ms. Toni Thorne and in 2017 Mr. Gregory Skeete were shortlisted for the top 20 of the JCI TOYP World Awards.
