WASHINGTON, D.C. —The Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) is now accepting applications for the 2018 Immersion Program, which will be held on November 18 – 23 in the Philippines.

The immersion program is for young Filipinos/Filipino-Americans in the United States who are interested in working with various stakeholders and communities to strengthen Philippines-US ties and advance Philippine interests and advocacies in the United States.

Selected delegates will be provided with the opportunity to interact with Philippine Government officials and leaders in the fields of business, arts and culture, and civil society.

In 2012, the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C., under the leadership of former Ambassador to the US Jose L. Cuisia, Jr, founded FYLPRO after recognizing the need for the younger generation to be more involved in the development of the Filipino community in the US.

Since then and with continued competitive, carefully reviewed, and vetted application process, sixty (60) outstanding leaders have graduated from the program, creating a robust network of talent, abilities, and ideals.

Leaders between the ages of 25 and 40 are encouraged to apply. Applicants must demonstrate leadership skills within their school, community, workplace, or other areas of involvement.

Romualdez said in a statement.
