Study Tours in Asia

Originally designed as alumni tours, we are opening our short tour programs beyond alumni to include friends, family, professionals, and anyone else learning about the regions and partners within VIA’s unique ecosystem. These experiences go far beyond the standard tour experience – participants have the opportunity to interact with the local community, visit many inspiring and innovative organizations driving grassroots social change, and see VIA’s mission in action. Past tour destinations have included western China, Myanmar/Burma, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
