PAARALAN SA KONSULADO


Since 1998

Paaralan Sa Konsulado (PSK) is an annual summer workshop for Filipino-American children between the ages of 6 to 16. It aims to provide children born and raised in the USA opportunities to learn about their culture and heritage and to offer a better understanding of their roots. It runs for 5 Saturdays in June and July from 9:00AM to 3:00PM with participants learning about Filipino values, heritage, history, arts, folksongs, dances, games, traditions, and conversational Filipino which are taught at the Philippine Center in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate of New York. With its aim of developing children’s awareness, understanding and appreciation of the Filipino culture, PSK is highlighted with an evening performance of songs and dances performed by Filipino American youth on its fifth Saturday.
