ANAK panelists (Daisydee Bautista, Andrew Aviso, Rocky Alfonso, Julian Eiril Arcega, Neneth Banas, Kezia Malabanan and WSD Liason Officer, Perla Javate) were featured as part of the University of Winnipeg Education in Diversity Conference. The presentation on the ANAK Kapatid In-School Mentorship program introduced the ANAK model in ethno-cultural based programming led by Filipino-Canadian post secondary students and young professionals in collaboration with Daniel McIntyre Collegiate Institute staff.

The program offers academic and social supports to newcomers as an after school program. It promotes the successful integration of newcomers in Canadian society. This panel presentation reflects the evolution of the program and key learning experiences from the perspective of ANAK members, volunteers and collaborative partners in an ethno-cultural community. The information shared in this presentation is pertinent to community development practices as well as building capacity in an organization.
