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.
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.
Fellows are placed in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.
