Happy post barrio season! Time to get back on the grind and finish out these last THREE weeks of the semester strong! 

Scholarship, Community, and Advocacy are working together to bring you KAMAYAN on APRIL 20th. Kamayan is the Tagalog word that translates to “by hand” where food is eaten as a family, communal style, off of banana leaves. Stay tuned for more details coming out in the next two weeks and keep an eye out for both the sign-up sheet and ticket sale form!

With all the love and support,
