150 for 150

With the newly minted PiA fellows getting ready to hit the ground in Asia, PiA is launching a crowdfunding campaign to support their fellowships this upcoming year. Our goal is to raise $150,000 for these 150 new fellows – 150 for 150 – by the end of our fiscal year on June 30th.

Our Mission

PiA’s mission is to foster mutual appreciation and cultural understanding by connecting service-minded graduates and partner organizations in Asia through immersive work experiences that transform perspectives and cultivate long-lasting friendships.

115 Years of Service in Asia

On the occasion of PiA's 115th anniversary (in 2013), we commissioned a documentary film to illuminate what is at the core of the PiA experience: service, community, and a change in perspective.
