CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The UP Gurong Pahinungód (GP) Program
The Gurong Pahinungód (GP) Program is a program of the Ugnayan ng Pahinungód under the Office of the President and the volunteer service program of UP. It is a one-year volunteer program that deploys UP graduates as volunteer teachers to communities.
From 1998 to 2008, the program was able to deploy 405 UP alumni to 160 public schools in the Philippines. The GP Program is once again looking for UP graduates who are interested in serving as GP volunteers for the school year 2022-2023.
Students of the GRADUATING CLASS of 2022 and UP ALUMNI from any field are welcome to apply.
Volunteers will receive a monthly allowance during their deployment. Accommodation in the area will be provided and transportation expenses to and from the sites of deployment will be shouldered by Ugnayan ng Pahinungod.
