JCI Manila, formerly known as the Manila Jaycees, is Asia’s first and premier leadership development organization.

It has produced the nation’s most distinguished leaders in both business and government. That is why JCI Manila is fondly referred to as the “University of Leaders”.

For 67 years, thousands of young men have joined the ranks and left to be great leaders. Young men such as Mr. Washington SyCip, Mr. Henry Sy, Ambassador Alfonso Yuchengco, Secretary Albert Del Rosario have all been a part of JCI Manila. These great men, during their time in the JCI Manila, have imparted their knowledge and principles, forming the organization it is today.

The University of Leaders, through it’s deep history and tradition, molds young men to be great leaders.

Last Sept 5, JCI Manila installed a vertical wall garden called “Pader ng Buhay” equipped with 1,692 silverwall and fern plants, a self-timing irrigation system and solar-powered lighting fixtures.

The Cleanup drive schedule is from October 19 to 23, 2020
