2024 Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) Immersion Program Applications Are Now Open

The Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) is pleased to announce the return of its signature immersion program this fall.

The annual immersion trip has been the signature piece of the partnership with the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs, the Ayala Foundation and FYLPRO since 2012.

This year, the immersion program is scheduled to take place the week of November 9, 2024.

The week-long program brings up to 15 young leaders from across different industries to the Philippines where they meet with business, community, and civic leaders in an effort to bridge and strengthen ties between the United States and the Philippines.

“Transformative, eye opener, life changing are the most common responses by delegates after the immersion said FYLPRO 2024-2025  President  JP Ferrer. “This year we are emphasizing legacy projects that can leave a lasting impact on both the US and the Philippines.”

In 2022, the immersion program committee raised the upper end of the eligible age range for delegates to 45 to account for those who might have aged out during the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously, the eligible age range was 25 to 40.

It has been a life changing and transformative trip for many of the over 100 alumni thus far. It has led to the creation of many businesses, collaborations, and partnerships serving Filipino and Filipino American communities.
