FYLPRO Announces Tayo Fellowship Program

Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) is launching its Summer 2021 Tayo Fellowship Program to provide support for Filipino communities negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, both in the U.S. and the Philippines.

The FYLPRO COVID-19 Task Force was formed last year to respond to the growing needs of Filipino and Filipino Americans during the pandemic.

Its online help desk, called “Tayo”, is designed for seniors, unemployed individuals and frontline workers with information to make decisions to safeguard their health and wellbeing during the pandemic.

With experts, content creators and service providers, the help desk provides advices in the areas of medicine, mental health, government assistance and many more. The FYLPRO COVID-19 Task Force is seeking fellows to support the ongoing operations of the Tayo help desk platform. The fellowship is an unpaid remote program and will run from June 20 to August 29, 2021.

On a weekly basis, Tayo fellows will:
– Identify credible sources of information such as policy think tanks, government agencies, professional and industry associations, business associations, and social service providers.

– Attend and participate in information sessions, webinars, and briefings to gather relevant information and updates and summarize the findings in the subject area for which you are responsible

– Write short and long form content weekly

– Attend a weekly coordination meeting (Sundays at 5:00pm ET), bi-weekly 1:1 meetings, and monthly leadership development sessions.
