Now accepting sponsors, speakers and virtual tables
Washington D.C. – The Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO), the Philippine Embassy in the U.S. and Ayala Foundation, Inc. launches FYLPROCon, a virtual youth conference on Nov. 4, 5 and 6, 2021 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and the Philippines and also to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Ayala Foundation.
The three-day event will be a summit for young leaders to hear stories, look back and honor those who have paved the way for Filipinos around the world today, and harness the collective strength available to create positive changes in communities as we move forward.
In lieu of FYLPRO’s annual immersion program, which brings young leaders to the Philippines on a week-long learning experience that has been cancelled again this year due to the pandemic, event participants will have a chance instead to access captains of industries via virtual networking tables.
In addition to exciting guest speakers and breakout sessions, there will be mentorship rooms, Filipino booth vendors selling products and services, special film screenings, demonstrations, games and more.
If you or your company supports the perpetuation and advancement of the Philippines and the Filipino people, download the packets online and consider becoming a sponsor.
FYLPROCon is open to the public and offers a special registration rate for students and Filipino organizations. Part of the proceeds go to FYLPRO’s scholarship program.
