The KASAMA Program (previously known as Kuya/Ate/Ading 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 Kasama?

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 kasamas are paired up, the kasama serves as a type of role model or peer mentor for the apo, giving them advice on academics, careers, or even personal matters as well.
