Jobs at VIA

Asia Programs Internships

VIA is trying to change the world. We need changemakers like you to help us. Join our team for an opportunity to do meaningful work that impacts the globe.  While we seek to cultivate social change around the world, our team is small and close-knit.  At VIA, we listen to your ideas and give you the tools to implement your work. If developing your professional growth, working with passionate people, and creating real social change interest you, please read on.

We are seeking interns for our Asia Programs team to support our one-year fellowship and two new major grant projects that are launching in 2013. Asia Programs is based in VIA’s San Francisco office (Financial district).  However, applicants from the Palo Alto area can request to work out of VIA’s Stanford office (Stanford campus) and meet in SF on a need basis. We look for talented students and professionals who can work independently and effectively support VIA’s growth. Because we invest significant staff time in making these internships a worthwhile experience for both you and VIA, we offer flexible hours but ask you commit 10-20 hours per week for a semester or quarter.

Some interns may be eligible for a transportation stipend. When credit is available through your university, VIA is happy to assist with any reasonable requests related to obtaining credit. VIA will also consider federal work-study and external fellowship requests.

The primary fall application deadline is October 1, 2014. If interested, please submit a resume and cover letter via email to Patrick Arnold, Senior Asia Programs Director Please include the title of the internship position in your email’s subject line.
