9 Young Leaders Selected To Serve As FYLPRO Summer 2021 Tayo Fellows


Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) is excited to announce its second cohort of nine talented young leaders to the FYLPRO Tayo Fellowship Program.

The FYLPRO Tayo Fellowship Program aims to equip young Filipino American leaders with the skills and strategies to support the Filipino and Filipino American community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fellows will provide assistance and support for our Filipino communities negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, both in the US and in the Philippines, through FYLPRO’s online help desk, Tayo, as well as through an ever evolving portfolio of COVID-19 response projects conducted by FYLPRO’s COVID-19 Task Force.

“As fellow Filipino young leaders, our Tayo Fellows play a pivotal role in informing, curating, and executing the adaptive work of FYLPRO’s COVID-19 Task Force. Last Fall, our inaugural cohort spearheaded the development of over 500+ articles on the website, developed assets and social media campaigns, conducted environmental scans and interviews with local Filipino American organizations and community members, staged several virtual educational events, and presented our work at national conferences.” said FYLPRO Tayo Fellowship Director, Krystle Canare. “This summer, I am honored to work alongside a new cohort of fellows who are already doing meaningful work to support the Filipino community in the U.S and abroad. Tayo means “us” in Tagalog and I cannot emphasize enough how important collective wisdom and fellowship are key to moving this work forward.”
