The National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) is excited to announce the official launch of the Empowering Pilipino Youth through Collaboration (EPYC) Ambassadors Program. Through this program, NaFFAA seeks to equip young leaders to refine their skills and learn new strategies in order to better serve their communities. The EPYC Ambassadors Program is a one-year commitment focused on the growth of Filipino American young leaders through leadership development, civic engagement, and advocacy.
Ambassadors will participate in monthly “train-the-trainer” webinars and share best practices around various learning outcomes, and will conduct outreach through in-person events, social media, and a capstone initiative called “My EPYC Project.” The program is an opportunity for ambassadors to work closely with a mentor, participate in NaFFAA regional leadership efforts, and support their local campuses and communities.
Applications to become an EPYC Ambassador are open until Sunday, July 9, 2017 at 11:59pm ET. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 34 at the time of application, and must be currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program OR have graduated from a degree-seeking program no more than 2-3 years before the time of application. For further information concerning the program, eligibility requirements, and the application process, please see this document or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
