2023 Tayo Fellowship Program: Applications Now Open

2023 Tayo Fellowship Program: Applications Now Open

This summer, Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) Tayo unit is seeking its fourth cohort of fellows to join the ongoing operations of Tayo and engage in a new initiative dedicated to training young Filipino American leaders how to hold courageous conversations in their communities and combat anti-Asian violence.

In light of the rise in violence and exacerbated mental health challenges faced by our communities during the pandemic, Tayo recognizes the importance of “kwentuhan” or sharing stories to garner the insights and lessons of the collective. That said, it is our hope to share Tayo’s current playbook for holding courageous conversations with current Filipino American young leaders and co-curate a training program that could be taught and shared with Filipino American youth across the country.

The fellowship program will run from June 4 - August 20, 2023.

The fellowship program is primarily virtual with optional opportunities to attend in-person events (ex. conferences, health fairs, festivals, etc) based on interest and availability. A tentative, expenses-paid,  in-person fellowship convening is slated for early August.

Deadline: April 30, 2023
