Alumni Working Group Founded to Strengthen the Bonding of Parami CommunityDecember 30, 2020
Since its establishment in 2017, Parami Leadership Program (PLP) has now over 114 alumni who have entered into diverse professional fields and higher education programs. Started as a semester-long program with 16 students in a cohort, PLP is now a yearlong program that provides liberal arts education to its 7th cohort of 34 students from diverse regions of Myanmar.
Just in time to celebrate Parami’s 4th year of founding and to reconnect the PLP alumni from various backgrounds and geographical locations, we have recently established an “Alumni Working Group” that will serve as a liaison between alumni and Parami, and share up-to-date professional and further study opportunities in the PLP community. This Alumni Working Group’s ultimate goal is to establish the Parami Alumni Association in the near future. Parami Alumni Working Group (AWG) is currently working on an alumni reunion and Parami’s anniversary event to reconnect and build a strong network of alumni.
Zin Myo Kyaw, an Advancement Officer at Parami and PLP alumnus from the 3rd Cohort, is acting as one of the leading organizers from Para mi to help organize and reconnect PLP alumni from different cohorts to participate in the AWG. "With this group, we aim to reconnect all our alumni for networking and sharing knowledge and information related to professional and further study. I am glad that all representatives from each Cohort are enthusiastic and willing to be a part of AWG," he said.
The courses from the program has provided the sought-after skills and knowledge to hundreds of Myanmar’s youth through a global-minded liberal arts and sciences education. The PLP alumni are currently pursuing higher education abroad and working in diverse professional expertise, including at NGOs and different development sectors: business, community development, environment, and education.
The Parami Leadership Program (PLP) is a year-long academic course for recent university graduates that nourishes the valuable critical and creative thinking and articulate communication skills needed to be engaged citizens and leaders.Through a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes discussion, reading, and hands-on learning experience in all subjects, students in PLP will learn to think critically and analyze carefully about the world around them.
