MYROi started as a youth organization. It was established in 1983 as a school-based student organization. Now it has spread its scope and area of coverage with the evolution of its different chapters in the higher educational institutions in Central Mindanao. In 1997, MYROi formally evolved as a non-government organization formed by its professional alumni members. It was organized with the broad concept of helping to prepare the youth for responsible leadership and initiating alternatives to accelerate the development of Mindanao and its people and cooperating in the different interventions, relevant, meaningful and responsive to their needs and aspirations so that they may take the lead in engendering genuine growth and prosperity in Mindanao and in the country. MYROi obtained its juridical personality upon its registration with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 1998.
