We have certainly stepped into something bigger than us -- [Jeremiah Firman, current PiA fellow in Thailand]

 

 

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.

Featured Story: Live from the Asia Trip!

155 fellows. 20 countries. 6 weeks. 5 staff. 1 helmet.

It's that time of year again: THE ASIA TRIP!! The PiA team has fanned out across the continent, and for the next month and a half we and the PiA class of 2014 will be reporting live from the field through PiA's Instagram account (with more than 1 helmet, by the way). Follow us at @princetoninasia to share in the classroom observations, tongue-numbing curries, overnight bus rides, partner meetings, and PiA reunions large and small that make our jobs the best jobs in the world. We'll catch you on the other side!
