KAMP is a grassroots organization of high school graduates, college students, and young professionals who educate themselves about Filipino American history and culture in order to bring that knowledge to local high school students and our larger community. Established in 2007 as the Sala Talk Collective with Mira Mesa High School as its main site, KAMP has expanded throughout San Diego County in the past five years. It has or has had a working relationship with Mira Mesa, Morse, Mount Carmel, Rancho Bernardo, Sweetwater, and Westview High Schools as well as Bell and Challenger Middle Schools. Outside the classroom space, KAMP organizes events to promote community-building and intergenerational collaboration. KAMP’s goal is to empower our youth through education to be fully participatory and transformative in our local and global communities.

All proceeds from KAMP’s Honor Roll will help fund year round programming and events for our students and community.
