FILGRIMAGE, a project of the Filipino School, is a semi-annual peer group journey to the Philippines for Filipino-Americans, ages 18 and up. The project aims to educate, awaken, and empower the Filipino diaspora in the United States. Our mission is to “Build and uplift the Filipino nation together as one family” and through the spirit of “Bayanihan,” we are “heroes” coming together for a common purpose. Join us on our next FILGRIMAGE trip, September 27th to October 3rd, 2016. Additional information is available at http://www.filgrimage.com.
