Our Impact

For over 50 years, VIA has sought to provide rich, immersive, cross-cultural learning experiences in the US and Asia that transcend boundaries, transform lives, and strengthen our global community. Faced with unprecedented challenges that are at once local and global, humanity must now expand beyond traditional allegiances and identities, and develop the mindset, skills and abilities needed for an interconnected and interdependent world. On all levels of engagement, VIA seeks to strengthen these skills in individuals and enable them to make a positive impact in their communities and in the world.

The result of these efforts is a continually growing network of alumni, partners, and friends of VIA who communicate and collaborate across borders, start their own non-profits, develop grassroots social change projects, and educate and support the growth of future global citizens.
