Quote of the Week

"The world is a complicated beast. But it’s beautiful, too. It’s not something to “figure out” or “hack” – it’s something to explore, and to enjoy, and to challenge in every day actions." --Anna Seeman (PiA 2015), World Education Laos

119 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.

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.
