Kapisanan is launching its third annual #SupportK online fundraising campaign that will focus on increasing the capacity of the organization’s FREE flagship mentorship programs for Filipino youth: CLUTCH and NAVIGATION (NAV)! The #SupportK campaign aims to raise $20,000 by December 31st, 2016 to provide additional funding to CLUTCH and NAV, which saw a massive influx of applicants in 2016

CLUTCH and NAV are six-month, arts-based mentorship programs for Filipino youth between the ages of 17 and 24 years to explore their cultural identity and leadership potential. Though these programs have been supported annually by the Ontario Arts Council since 2008, the amounts have not increased to match the expansion we are seeing.

Funds raised through the #SupportK2016 campaign will provide direct investment to support Kapisanan’s efforts to scale up the CLUTCH and NAV programs in 2017, helping even more Filipino youth cultivate an enriched sense of community and more visible presence and contribution toward the broader Canadian community. Your help gives our young people a new and authentic sense of pride, that will empower and support them to rise above the challenges ahead of them. Thank you to all the amazing community members for their generous contributions.

Programs are needed to deliberately and intentionally cultivate a generation of youth leaders in the Toronto Filipino community. There are numerous community organizations that could deliver such programs if provided with adequate support.

Programs are needed that will create bridging social capital for young Filipinos. For example, internships might allow them to experience diverse working environments beyond those that are readily accessible through first generation family and friend networks. But the accessibility of internships needs to be considered. Unpaid internships, which are becoming increasingly common, effectively exclude those who do not have the financial means (or family support) to forego earnings. Filipino youth from low-income families would need access to paid internships in order for a system of this kind to truly increase their social capital and range of options.

Kapisanan is a brave space which integrates an anti-oppression framework for young Filipinos to express their voices, exchange ideas and explore their roots together as an empowered community.
