Talent Development Program Overseas
An experiential learning for the indigenous youths of Taiwan – from language, skills, to internationalism…
From the beginning of its involvement in the East Coast of Taiwan, The Alliance Cultural Foundation (ACF) has dreamed to not only create positive sustainable growth in the region, but to introduce Taiwan’s rich indigenous culture internationally; education, and educating the youth is key. ACF’s overseas talent development program, in collaboration with Hawaii Tourism Authority and WISH Communication, offers a full scholarship to selected candidates of the indigenous origin to study at Brigham Young University (BYU) whilst interning at the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC). The study program aims to develop a skill for the student to eventually bring back to their villages to re-teach other indigenous youths, and the internship program aims to offer experiential learning in sharing tribal arts and culture. Through its overseas talent development program, ACF dreams to expand the youth’s horizons, and to develop them into internationalized individuals.
