Social Impact Fellowships in Asia
Global Community Fellowships with VIA Programs
Fully Funded One-Year Fellowships in Asia
Application Deadline: November 12th, 2017
The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for young and 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.
- 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.
- As an NGO fellow, you'll support community development and international communication efforts by supporting NGOs to access resources, networks, and collaboration opportunities.
In addition to Education-focused posts and NGO-focused posts, all fellows work in program management and leadership development capacities.
- Fellows also lead VIA’s short-term experiential education programs for high school and university students. As a short-term program coordinator, you will learn how to design, manage and evaluate experiential programs. Fellows gain valuable professional skills, including facilitation, curriculum design, evaluation, and budgeting.
