March 30 deadline for FYLPro applications

Washington – The Philippine Embassy in Washington D.C. last March 18 hosted a meet & greet and webinar with Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Cuisia Jr. and former FYLPRO delegates at its headquarters, reminding applicants of the March 30 deadline to apply for the program.

The event was open to interested applicants for the Filipino Young Leaders Program, a week-long leadership immersion program in the Philippines in July. Alumni from the program are expected to share experiences from the trip and share insights on how to land a spot on the prestigious opportunity.

I totally missed the session because it was in the middle of the day for Hawaii. Getting together with the FYLPro folks is always a fun time. I feel very inspired every time I get together with them.

The Embassy said the program is open to individuals who meet the following criteria:
  1. No younger than 25 years old and no older than 40 years old by 02 July 2015;
  2. Ready and capable of travelling to the Philippines to participate in the 4th FYLPro and the 10th Ambassadors, Consuls General and Tourism Directors Tour (ACGTDT)on 02-04 July and 06-09 July 10th Ambassadors, Consuls General and Tourism Directors Tour (ACGTDT), respectively;
  3. Have potential or demonstrated leadership skills within their school, community, workplace or other area of involvement; and,
  4. Have potential or demonstrated involvement in the Filipino-American Community, or in issues and/or activities that align with the interest of the Filipino American community or the Philippines.
Interested individuals may download the application form here.
Applications and documentary requirements should be submitted to the foreign service post nearest the applicant’s place of residence—the Embassy in Washington, D.C. and the Consulates General in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Honolulu and Agana — on or before 30 March 2015.
The names of the 10 chosen delegates will be announced on 30 April 2015.
If you fit the bill, please consider applying! I swear, the program is something you will never forget.

Here’s the flyer I made for the last event.
