How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

EngageAsia's aim is to utilize education to facilitate understanding between and among American and Asian teachers and students with a mission of fostering peace through education.

Our first strategy is to effectively run EngageAsia's 2017-2018 academic year Taiwan Program, which will train a small cohort of U.S. teachers about Taiwan and foster relationships with teachers there. EngageAsia plans to follow-up the Taiwan project with a reciprocal program for Taiwanese teachers. From 2018 to 2020, EngageAsia plans to facilitate programs working with educators in Japan and Korea in an effort to cultivate networks of educators throughout the Pacific Rim that will build understanding among the nations of Asia and between the US and Asia.

EngageAsia's founders, board members, and advisers are top leaders in the fields of international exchange, cross-cultural communication, and U.S.-Asia relations, ensuring that the organization has the knowledge base and network to ensure success.

EngageAsia will know if it is making progress based on the quality of applicants for its inaugural program and the feedback we receive from the teachers as they go through the program.

The organization has developed a network of key people and institutions in the U.S. and Taiwan that can assist in ensuring that this inaugural program is a success. EngageAsia's main need at the moment is raising the funds necessary to effectively run this first program.
