Nominate an outstanding Barbadian young person today

JCI West Indies is searching for Outstanding Young People.

The time has come to recognize the outstanding achievements of our country’s youth. The search for honorees for the 2017 JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (JCI TOYP) Program has begun, and JCI is sure that young people from the West Indies will be among the world’s top honorees.  

“The 2017 JCI TOYP, recognizes the achievements of young people in categories ranging from business accomplishments and humanitarian efforts to outstanding leadership, medical and cultural achievements,” said Kwesi Des Vignes, 2017 President of JCI West Indies.

The JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (JCI TOYP) Program recognizes young people who excel in their chosen fields. By recognizing these young people, JCI encourages them and others to seek excellence and serve others. It’s just one way that JCI contributes to preparing better leaders, who will create better societies. 

“If you know outstanding young persons in Barbados, we encourage you to nominate them for the JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons Award” Malika Chow, 2017 Local President of JCI Barbados said.  “In 2014, our very own Toni Thorne was a finalist for the Americas region. We want Barbadians to be well-represented at this inspirational international program that honors young people who excel in their field.” Chow added. 

“Honorees from the West Indies will not only be recognized at the 57th Annual JCI West Indies National Convention in Tobago, they will be sent on to the International TOYP Program, where honorees from around the globe will be recognized for their achievements” Des Vignes added.   International honorees will receive a free round-trip airline ticket to the Netherlands to attend the JCI World Congress, where their accomplishments will be featured at an Awards Ceremony. 

The nomination form for JCI TOYP can be found online at or email- and must be completed no later than midnight, on May 10th to JCI Barbados.
