  4. Mentors Urgently Needed

    March 20, 2014 by wafw

    Not everyone can go to China and get to experience WAFW on the Sias University campus. But that doesn’t mean you can’t build a strong relationship with one of its members.
         Facilitator Kristine Quade has made it a personal goal to find a mentor for every Academy member this year. Male mentors are especially needed for the Men’s Academy members.
         “I came to realize how much they are longing for someone to bounce ideas off of,” said Kristine. “They know in their heart what the answer is,but, like many young people, they long to see a bigger picture.”
         If you are interested in becoming a mentor, contact Kristine at Kristine@KristineQuade.com.

  5. WAFW: Transforming Dreams into Reality

    March 20, 2014 by wafw

    “Last night I had dinner with Monday, Carina, and Amber. Oh my. What a wonderful treat. This is why I am here and said yes when you asked–or did you even have to ask? They are such wonderful and excited women ready to fly. One thing I love, among many, is that they each have a dream. The country seems to have a dream and they were so sure they had their dream and knew where they were going. I asked if everyone did and they said many were confused. The World Academy helped them to really see their dream.”

  6. Survey Shows WAFW Impact on Members’ Future Success

    March 20, 2014 by wafw

    Preliminary results of the first comprehensive survey  of the last 4 1/2 years of WAFW attendees indicates how much impact the Academy has had on their lives and how it prepared them for post-university success.
         The survey, which had a 67% return rate, found that 81% of the respondents that attended graduate school were successful there. Of the respondents, 69% said they had attended the Advanced Academy and 71% said they had attended the Academy in Action, which would infer a positive correlation between the number of years in the World Academy and the level of success.
         The survey was conducted by Dr. Suzanne Martin, Professor at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and a member of the WAFW board. Dr. Martin has been awarded a one academic year sabbatical from UCF to work directly with the WAFW staff at SIAS International University.

  7. HIV/AIDS Awareness Project Awarded Brits Abroad Grant

    March 20, 2014 by wafw

    The HIV/AIDS Awareness Project of the WAFW has received word that its 3700RMB proposal to Brits Abroad will be fully funded.

    The project group will use the money to hold “an unforgettable and meaningful” Children’s Day for the HIV orphans coming to visit SIAS campus on June 1st, 2014. The project team will find out what the children want through WAFW’s partner, the Chi Heng Foundation, and give all the children special gifts.

    But, according to Project Leader Cecilia Zhang, the group members have learned the lesson that it’s not enough to just give gifts., Every child will be asked to write down how they will use the gift and the goal they want to accomplish over the course of the year.

    “We hope it will give the children not only a happy day, but also plant seeds of dreams in their heart,” said Cecilia.

       Wherever members of the WAFW have been this year, you don’t have to look far to see a member of the Men’s Academy for the Future of Women close by.
       No matter what the WAFW activity–from the showing of “Girl Rising” to marching for “Stand Up! Make Noise! Take Action!” –there have been Men’s Academy members there to support the efforts and contribute their unique skills and perspectives. They are also actively involved in all the project groups and among the most committed members.
    The Men’s Academy consistently provides support.
       Under the strong leadership of Faculty Advisors Dwight Duckins and Steve Sumner, the young men undertook their own activities as well, which included climbing ShiZu Mountain and learning about “safe dating.”
       “We are doing what we said we would do in the  oath,” said Jackie Yin. “We want to support our classmates with their leadership goals and make the World Academy a better place.”
