PAYO is student-driven. This means the students dictate the course of the organization with the Kuyas and Ates providing a supporting role. The students plan general body meeting agendas, lead workshops, organize events, and more. PAYO also offers students academic and higher education resources such as study sessions, college campus tours, and financial aid information. We strive to provide young Filipino Americans a place fit for all their needs in regards to self identity, job readiness, preparation for higher education and a space to commune freely.
