PROGRAMS

The Programs Board comprises of the Internship Program, the Kuya Ate Ading Mentorship Program (KAAMP), and Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN).

The Internship Program educates general members through weekly meetings, activities, workshops, and hands-on opportunities to learn effective skills, ideals, and principles related to culture, community, and self in order to cultivate their leadership potential.

The Kuya Ate Ading Mentorship Program (KAAMP) connects general members together through Fams who provide positive guidance, a family environment, and mentorship in order to create long lasting friendships.

Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN) is AkbayanSJSU's annual Spring production that inspires general members to dig deep into themselves and encourage creativity through the arts, foster leadership in the cast, and empower change within the community.

Hey what’s good world the name is Roijethro Demetria, but I’m better known as Jeth. I’m a 3rd year Civil Engineering major who likes photography and art. I was born in Cebu City in the Philippines but I moved to America and was raised primarily in San Jose, California. My Instagram and Snapchat is @Genericjet and my Twitter is @Genericjett. I’m a Gemini, a member of Smash Fam, a Limitless Intern (‘16-’17), one of the 2017-2018 Media officer, and now I'm proud to serve as the Internship Coordinator of the 42nd Cabinet. My favorite color is hot pink and I enjoy good company, good music, and good vibes. I also really love playing video games with friends and long hikes in nature. I'm always down to meet someone new and make new friends so don't be afraid to come by and say hi whenever you see me at the table or just around!

Salutations all! My name is Joshua-Benjamin Marrald and I am a proud San Francisco native. This is my 4th year as a Music Education Major with a concentration in Choral & General music at SJSU. In my spare time, I love watching shows like Brooklyn 99 and My Hero Academia, as well as spending quality time with friends! I joined Akbayan during the second semester of my freshman year when I was picked up by Raymond Domulot in Venture Fam. My second year, I became a Limitless Intern, as well as a cast member in PCN 29: Unspoken Words. During my third year, I was part of PCN 30’s COREsages as the Choir director, and I helped found the new KAAMP fam Tribe alongside my co-founders and my 5 wonderful adings. This year, I am so excited to serve as this year’s PCN Coordinator! I hope to inspire the same passion and love for this organization in our members as the past leaders have instilled in me, and I cannot wait to see what this year has in store. If you ever see me on campus, don’t hesitate to say hello!
