The Bayanihan Volunteer Corps is composed of different Bayanihan Circles or Committees. They are grounded in the Filipino shared values of Aksyon (Action), Bayanihan (People working together), Kapitbahayan (Neighborly concerns), and Damayan (Mutual aid). These values are embedded in the first four letters of the Filipino alphabet (ABKD).
The Bayanihan Volunteer Corps implements the mandate of the April 22, 2017 Resolution to organize committees/circles to run the organization which was consistent with the standing committees envisioned by the FACGC’s 2016 BYLAWS: ARTICLE V OFFICERS OF THE FACC, Section 9, "There shall be standing committees to plan and to implement approved, programs and policies; to study and prepare projects for adoption by the Board of Trustees."
The people’s power is expressed in the different Bayanihan Circles where planning, decision-making, and execution happen. The Circles are:
(1) Fundraising Circle (special events and direct donations, grants, etc.)
(2) Legal and Governance Circle (compliance with IRS, AGO, and SOS, directors and officers empowerment; policies and procedures, etc.)
(3) Financial and Administration Circle (accounting, auditing, human resources, etc.)
(4) Outreach Circle (outreach, volunteer recruitment, training and education, etc.
(5) Facility Circle ( building upkeep, repair and renovation, security, etc.)
(6) Communications Circle (media relations, press statements, press conferences, etc.)
(7) Programs Circle (Program design and implementation, etc.).
