AKA

The Ate-Kuya-Ading (AKA) Program is KP’s mentorship program. In Tagalog, ate and kuya mean “older sister” and “older brother”; ading means “younger sibling” in Ilocano. New members are “picked up” as adings by returning members, who become their kuya or ate. Your kuyate will mentor you, give you advice, and help you feel more at home at KP and UCSB.
