Giving Tuesday: Support FYLPRO

Consider donating to FYLPRO this #GivingTuesday and beyond.

The Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) is a network of high-performing, next-generation leaders who advance the Philippines and the Filipino people through their advocacy and expertise in various industries.

We continually expand the pipeline of Filipino young leaders in the diaspora. By connecting them to the motherland, we foster collaborative multinational relationships that create innovations and support the socio-economic progress of the global Filipino community.

In its 10th year, FYLPRO continues to build its network to provide a space for partnerships and collaboration across the diaspora.

Some of the major programs and events we’ve launched and continue to build on this year:
*Tayo – which started as a virtual help desk for Filipinos during COVID19 is now pivoting to an innovative data hub that empowers Filipinx/a/o communities by collecting data, fostering partnerships, publishing culturally relevant insights, and developing leaders to create an equitable and sustainable future. Since launching in fall 2020, Tayo has amassed more than $300K in grants from Booz Allen Foundation, CDC Foundation, Department Health and Human Services, Northwestern University
*Act to Change Youth Ambassadors – We launched a collaboration with Act to Change’s Youth Ambassador Program to mentor high school students on anti-bullying and mental health peer education
