Starting from the academic year 2016-2017, New Generation Academy (NGA) launched a new partnership program with Princeton-in-Asia Program (PiA).
One PiA fellow joins the NGA team for the academic year. He/she serves as a full-time faculty, involved in teaching English for Academic Purposes, Conversational English, or Test Preparation - TOEFL. All PiA fellows have gone through TOEFL preparation and have extensive experience of teaching English abroad. The fellow is actively engaged in both academic and extra-curricular activities held for students at NGA. NGA welcomes the opportunity to host fellows in AUCA and in Kyrgyzstan in general, giving them the opportunity to gain teaching experience, develop various skills, meet students from different regions of Central Asia, and experience ethnic food and culture.
FURTHERMORE, PiA's mission is to promote goodwill and understanding and to facilitate in every way the free interchange of the best ideals in the civilizations of both East and West/ We aim to foster mutual appreciation and cultural understanding by connecting service-minded graduates and partner organizations in Asia through immersive work experiences that transform perspectives, cultivate long-lasting relationships and benefit local and global communities. PiA sponsors over 150 fellowships and internships in 21 countries and is the oldest and largest organization of its kind, unique in its scope, size, century-long expertise, and emphasis on service. The essence of PiA is to provide transformative, service-oriented experiences for bright, talented graduates and to serve the needs of Asia as determined by our host institutions and Asian partners. PiA arranges fellowships and internships with Asian host organizations that contribute to important global issues at the local level: education, public health, environmental sustainability, access to information/media, economic development, and social justice. Fellowships are the means of fostering person-to-person diplomacy, enhancing mutual understanding, contributing to communities with unmet needs, and providing transformative experiences for fellows and host communities.
