WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) kicked off its multi-city Magiting Networking Mixer Roadshow on Wednesday, March 13, at the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Joined by Deputy Chief of Mission Jaime Ramon Ascalon, who has been instrumental in FYLPRO’s inception and evolution, and Second Secretary, Consul, and Sentro Rizal Administrator Mark Dominic E. Lim, and FYLPRO’s leadership team emphasized the importance of fostering ties and building bridges between the U.S. and the Philippines.

In partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs, Ayala Foundation, Inc., AvidaLand, and Seda Hotels, the roadshow is intended to engage with like-minded organizations to build mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations, build a pipeline for immersion candidate pool and board leadership, educate the audience, and promote FYLPRO’s impact programs.

Speakers at the kickoff event included:

  • FYLPRO President-Elect Genevieve Jopanda talked about FYLPRO’s background, mission, and mentorship opportunities
  • DCM Jaime Ramon Ascalon is at the genesis of FYLPRO and its mission to nurture the potential of Filipinx Americans and help them become bridge builders in their families’ home country.
  • FYLPRO 2022 delegate John Victoria on takeaways from immersion experience and finding purpose as a Filipinx American and being paired with his mentor Manny Ayala of Endeavor
  • FYLPRO 2022 delegate Jamille Nagtalon-Ramos on how FYLPRO fosters an environment that cultivates your true potential that you may not have seen in yourself
  • FYLPRO treasurer Sabrina Sayoc on her experience serving in a leadership role and opportunities for non-alumni to participate as a member or on the board and committees

The 2024 roadshow will continue in April to New York, Jacksonville, Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Honolulu.
