Statement Regarding Harassment Policies

As a leading cross-cultural experiential learning organization, VIA takes seriously reports of sexual or other harassment, whether arising in domestic or foreign settings, that may adversely affect VIA program participants and staff. Our overall goal is to ensure that VIA participants are able to engage in VIA-related activities — including working with local partner organizations — while experiencing a safe and courteous work or learning environment. VIA’s program materials for particular programs and staff handbook set forth specific harassment procedures for identifying and addressing issues or concerns that may arise in this area. VIA is committed to providing a work and participation environment that is free of harassment.
