In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country, the NNED selects a partner organization to highlight once a month. Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO), has been selected as the Partner of the Month for May in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month.
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. FYLPRO was established in 2012 by Former Ambassador of the Republic of the Philippines to the United States of America Jose L. Cuisia, Jr. and Mrs. Victoria J. Cuisia in cooperation with the Ayala Foundation Inc. (AFI) to annually identify outstanding young professionals in the Filipino communities across the United States and provide the delegates with invaluable community, business, and government insights and access to distinguished network captains of industry and government. The organization’s guiding principles are Integrity, Innovation, and Inclusivity.
Some of the programs and projects FYLPRO is involved in:
- Immersion Program – Every year, FYLPRO works with the Philippine Embassy and the Consulates General in the United States to search for the most outstanding, next-generation Filipinos in the United States to participate in its distinguished Immersion Program in the Philippines.
- Legacy Projects – Legacy projects are social impact projects focused on the Philippines and Filipino communities abroad that are either social enterprises, philanthropic causes, or civic engagement initiatives.
- The Caretaker Project – This help desk is a virtual resource to help the Filipino community. This project aims to fill gaps in services for the most vulnerable social groups — seniors, frontline workers, and the unemployed.
