For immediate release: Feb. 6, 2017
FYLPRO officials today remind community of the organization’s obligation to be present in a statement released, citing a renewed commitment to inspire next-generation leaders to uphold the ideals of a thriving Filipino community.
Part of the statement reads, “with new leadership at the helm both in the U.S. and the Philippines, we remain constant in our commitment to work with members of the administration to address new challenges and enhance opportunities within our capacity.” As a nonprofit organization, FYLPRO, with the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs and Ayala Foundation, annually selects ten outstanding young leaders to participate in its week-long Immersion Program to the Philippines.
Full text of the statement is available (here) on the FYLPRO website.
“We are laying the foundation for another productive year in the organization, fueled by a desire to ensure the program doesn’t stop when delegates return to the U.S.,” FYLPRO newly elected president Kit Zulueta said. “With now a stronger network of 50 alumni in various states across the nation, we are actively seeking for opportunities to collaborate with the community to ensure program continuity.
“The community landscape may change, but our vision to create a positive impact remains the same. I humbly ask for your support.”
