VIA provides rich, immersive, cross-cultural learning experiences in the U.S. and Asia that transcend boundaries, transform lives, and strengthen our global community. Founded at Stanford in 1963, VIA is a private, non-profit, and non-religious organization. Our Asia Programs include a Global Community Fellowship for professionals and short-term programs for high school and university students.
Location - Asian Continent
The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for graduating seniors and young/ established professionals. Fellows work at NGOs and schools across Asia to support community development and youth education programs. By working directly with communities, fellows get hands-on experience learning how organizations in Asia are using creative and innovative methods to address critical social challenges. We work in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Education-focused Posts – As a teaching fellow, you'll advance student development using critical thinking, peace and conflict resolution, and cross-cultural communication curriculum. You'll also help students to access future education and professional opportunities.
NGO-focused Posts – As an NGO fellow, you'll support community development and international communication efforts by supporting NGOs to access resources, networks, and collaboration opportunities.
Upcoming fellows must have at least a BA or BS by May 2016.
