The mission of Pilipino Recruitment and Enrichment Program (PREP) is to equip its executive board and general members with a greater understanding of the importance of higher education, focusing primarily on the context of our own Pilipinx culture. Through the exploration of our own cultural identity, we seek to learn the needs of not only our own community but also on the needs of others. The culmination of these efforts are in hope that those involved with the organization will grow to be leaders and share their knowledge with those around them to empower and educate.
The vision of Pilipino Recruitment and Enrichment Program (PREP) is to serve as a first year pipeline into the greater Pilipinx community at UCLA. We aim to provide a space in which these new students are easily able to explore the resources available and foster friendships amongst themselves and other UCLA students. Through collaboration with Mabuhay Collective and Search to Involve Pilipino Americans, we hope to discover and address the needs of the first year community, while encouraging involvement in these spaces.
