FYLPRO is a non-profit organization that was established in 2012 by Ambassador of the Republic of the Philippines to the U.S., Jose L. Cuisia, Jr. and Mrs. Victoria J. Cuisia in cooperation with the Ayala Foundation Inc. to identify, each year, ten outstanding young professionals in the Filipino communities across the United States called FYLPRO delegates. The leadership immersion in the Philippines provides the delegates with invaluable community, business, and government insights and access to a distinguished network of captains in industry and government.
