Although KAYA® operates in a national scale, we also understand that the Filipino American community is spread throughout the country, not only in obvious places like California or New York, but also in some out-of-the-way places like Las Vegas, Richmond and Atlanta. Therefore, KAYA®‘s leadership is split between the national and the regional chapters. Our national leadership sets our national agenda, directs resources where necessary and nurtures the coordination between regional chapters. Our regional chapters on the other hand do the real work: they organize communities at the local level, identify issues that are pertinent to their area and program events and activities for aspiring Filipino American leaders.
If you are interested in becoming one of our leaders, don’t hesitate to let us know. We are always interested in meeting the next leaders of the Filipino American community!
