CAMP Philippines

THE STORY:

CAMP Philippines is a student-run group that provides advice for young Filipinos on all aspects related to the college application process. We think that most Filipino students, especially those from local schools, are hesitant to apply abroad because they think that they have little chance of getting accepted, or that they cannot afford it. Our vision is for students in local high schools in the Philippines to become more aware of the college application process, and to believe and understand that they have all the necessary abilities and experience to attend college internationally if they would like to.

Last May 16th, CAMP Philippines launched a moderated Facebook group where students can access important documents, ask questions, and engage in discussion on college-related matters. Shortly after, we created an official website which is constantly being updated with helpful information and documents for Filipino students to apply abroad. Additionally, we have established a mentoring program where students can receive help from current college students studying in the Philippines or abroad. There are currently 37 college students who have volunteered to mentor through this program, and they hail from universities all over the world, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, the UAE, and Singapore.

Since we first launched the CAMP Philippines, our Facebook group has gained more than 360 active members and continues to grow by the day. More than 90 of these members have also signed up for our mentoring program, including students from Xavier, La Salle, Poveda, ICA, Assumption, and Philippine Science High School.

Your donations, no matter how small, will help us build CAMP Philippines from the ground up. We hope to use whatever funds we acquire to improve our website, conduct school visits, create guidebooks, and hold workshops for mentors and teachers.
