The experience includes:

  • Actual homework - things to work on throughout the week, to be processed the next online session.

  • Lots of group work. This is key to the success of the class. You’ll exchange ideas with the rest of the fellows and in smaller, breakout groups. 

  • A post-event check-in session with the mentor after 1 month, to discuss progress and set you up for successs



  • Assess your current strengths and gaps as a leader
  • Learn how to understand and adapt to varying perspectives, and aligning everyone to a common vision.

What is the ALPHA Program?

The ALPHA Program is a series of learning sessions featuring some of the most experienced and accomplished personalities across different fields. It combines in-class learning and mentorship, where enrolled fellows will not only learn theories and frameworks on their chosen subject matter, but also from the personal journeys and philosophies of their mentors.

Each class will only have 30-40 fellows, to encourage deeper dialogue and interaction.

How is it different from other seminars or masterclasses with the same subject matter?

The ALPHA Program is not your typical seminar or workshop. The focus is not on theories or textbook lectures, but more on learning from each mentor’s experience and worldviews on the subject matter, distilled into one session. We ask our mentors the question, if this will be the last class will teach, what would you like to impart?

But learning does not just happen from the top down. By keeping each class small, we encourage open conversations between the fellows and the mentors, as so much can be learned by building upon or challenging each other’s ideas. One of our goals for ALPHA is to start a community of leaders, doers, and lifelong learners, whose ties will last beyond the program.

What time commitment is required?

The highlight is the one-day face-to-face session with the mentor. Prior to that, we will be sending some preliminary reading materials a week in advance, to prime you for the session.

This 2020, we also launched our 1st Online Mentorship class. For online mentorship, the format is three 2-hour sessions, happening every 9 AM to 11AM (3 Saturdays). Homework will also be given during the week.

Can I join more than one class?

Yes, you can. Each class happens on a different day, so you’re more than welcome to join more than one. We also offer discounts (Php 3,000 off) , should you like to join two or more classes.

How do I join and how much is the investment?

Simply go to each mentor’s page, click APPLY NOW, and fill in your details. You will be receiving an email from your mentor, with 3 short questions that you need to answer. These questions are related to the subject matter, and will help the mentor get to know you better – this is important as we keep our classes small. Should we exceed the maximum required for each class, the mentors will select the participants joining the roster.

After that, you will receive an email notice regarding your application, including the next steps in confirming your slot.

Our early bird rate is at Php 9,500, while regular rate is at Php 14,500. Discounts are available for joining more than one class.

For help in signing up, email us at alpha@futureproof.ph.

Where will the classes be held?
