The Kuya/Ate/Ading (KAA) Program is for all general body members of Samahan, and is a great way to meet new people and be even more welcomed into our organization.



What is a Kuya/Ate/Ading?

In Tagalog, calling someone your Kuya is sign of respect to an older male relative such as a brother, cousin, or family friend. For a female, you use the tagalog word Ate. Now an Ading is like your younger sibling, friend, etc.


What does this program do?

When kuyates (short for kuyas and/or ates, because you can have a kuya and an ate!) and adings are paired up, the kuyate serves as a type of role model or peer mentor for the ading, giving them advice on academics, careers, or even personal matters as well.
