Homecoming 2017 is an upcoming series of events by Kaya Collaborative’s chapters in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Washington DC.
Launched in 2013, Kaya Collaborative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that connects young leaders from the Filipino diaspora to leaders who are driving social change in the Philippines.
This year, we have selected 21 college students and recent graduates from over 250 applicants to return to the Philippines through our 4th annual Fellowship. For 2 months, our Fellows will be learning from local leaders and taking on internships with nonprofits, social enterprises, and innovative organizations in Metro Manila, Cebu, and Bohol.
We invite you to join our Fellows in their upcoming journey. Part reception and part storytelling experience, the Homecoming 2017 series aims to amplify narratives, stir dialogue, and reconnect Filipino-American communities to their origins — and at the same time raise funds for our Fellows’ trips to the Philippines this summer.
