Jeff Yarborough (Nepal)


Jeff Yarborough

Jeff Yarborough (Collective Campaign for Peace - COCAP): Jeff received a BA in Russian and East European Studies from Pomona College, during which time he also spent a year studying abroad in Moscow. Upon graduation, his interest in the post-Soviet world led him to Kyrgyzstan where he taught English for a year. Jeff also gained experience of the nonprofit world from working on child advocacy. At the time of his fellowship, Jeff was studying for a Master’s degree in international affairs with a concentration in human rights at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. After his fellowship, Jeff wrote: "Overall, this experience was far more educational than anything I could have done academically (or even professionally) and I am so thankful to AP for providing me with the opportunity to have this amazing experience."
