Global Community Fellowships in Asia, VIA Programs, Palo Alto, CA. Deadline: 30 October 2022.
The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for recent university graduates and starting as well as experienced professionals. Fellows work at NGOs, schools, universities, and social enterprises across Asia to support community development, capacity-building, and education. 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.
Fellows engage in a wide range of activities and tasks with VIA local partners. Each post has a unique mix of responsibilities, which generally fall into the following categories:
Education — Fellows advance student development in critical thinking and cross-cultural communication. Through teaching (English or other subjects depending on the post), you’ll help students to access future education and professional opportunities.
Training & Capacity-building — Fellows develop training resources and curricula for partners to enhance their organizational operations and optimize for impact. You may help with needfinding, research, training program or workshop design, facilitation, and assessment for partner staff and/or the communities they serve.
Community Development — Fellows support community development and international communication efforts by facilitating access resources, networks, and collaboration opportunities. You may help with fundraising, project management, and community outreach efforts of local partners.
