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.
- The fellowship is open to individuals with a BA or BS degree before late May, 2016.
- Although the fellowship is primarily aimed towards U.S. citizens, we do accept applications from international residents who have a previous connection to VIA or a substantial U.S. connection.
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.
Program Management & Leadership Development
- Fellows also lead VIA’s short-term experiential education programs for high school and university students.
