In the midst of Myanmar’s remarkable transition toward democracy an intriguing educational post is open in downtown Yangon. The Pre-Collegiate Program seeks a new Director to start in July 2017. To call PCP a tiny 16-month prep school with a need blind admissions policy catches the form but misses the spirit. To call PCP an incubator for Burmese change agents catches the mission. Ever since the first PCP graduates won scholarships to ASIANetwork schools, they have returned to join and lead endeavors in many fields, ranging from documentary film making, to improving farmers’ livelihood, to preserving the colonial architectural heritage, to founding schools.
As a co-founder of ASIANetwork, I would especially welcome a teacher from an AN school inquiring about coming to lead the Pre-Collegiate Program that had I co-founded in 2003. We can enable a spouse or partner to secure a job that pays more than the living wage that PCP can offer now. For an outstanding candidate, funding is available for an exploratory visit to Yangon. Deadline: March 20, 2017.
ASIANetwork schools that have provided scholarships to Pre-Collegiate Program graduates:
Bard at Simon’s Rock
College of Wooster
Concordia – Moorhead
Franklin & Marshall
U of Evansville
