Education Association for China Tomorrow



Education Enhancement

Youth Cultivation

US-China Cultural Exchange Promotion

Education Association for China Tomorrow (EACT) traces its history back to International Education Foundation which was initially founded by a group of patriotic scholars who were concerned with China's education and development in 1999. In 2006, EACT was approved by US Federal Government and officially became a nonprofit, tax exempt 501(C)(3) organization.

Through more than ten years' growth and development, EACT has become a quite active and influential nonprofit organization not only around DC area but also internationally, particularly in the field of education enhancement and cultural/educational exchange promotion. At the threshold of the next ten brand new years, EACT intend to concentrate on three main missions.

Education Enhancement

With the urban-rural dichotomy still as a severe problem in China, EACT will continue to take education as the key solution to the unequal status-quo. Through our long-term study and practice at China's rural area, we found that the sustainable development of rural construction is heavily reliant on local members with high collectively educational level and scientific development perspective. Thus, we will stick to creating a life-long learning environment at rural area so as to enhance the learning ability and public consciousness of local people.
Farmers, with the population of 0.8 billion, along with their kids are eager to obtain equal development opportunities as urban citizens. An ambitious goal as it is, any single more attention or action will get us closer to the achievement of it.

At current phase, we are mainly engaged in funding Spring Bud Primary School. Specifically, we sponsor academically and comprehensively outstanding students with Spring Bud Scholarship and especially encourage teachers to enhance professional commitment and teaching level so as to promote the construction and improvement of the overall quality of an excellent teaching body.

Youth Cultivation

Bestowed by its name, EACT is with a view to Education for China Tomorrow. Since young generation is and will always be the main force to lead one country's tomorrow. We always attach tremendous importance to youth cultivation.

For instance, after three years' endeavor, EACT won the authorization of acting as the Sole Agency in China on behalf of the Youth Assembly at the United Nations from 2009 through 2014. EACT is specifically responsible for setting up a youth delegate with selected outstanding youth from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions and Taiwan Province. EACT meant to introduce the Annual Youth Assembly to Chinese youth as a bridge for cultural exchanges with youth from around the world. Through UN head quarter tour, Volunteer Action and UN meetings simulation, Chinese youth gained plenty experience which is valuable for cultivating their world citizen consciousness and passion for engaging in public welfares as well as a world view of "Root in Homeland, Care for the World".

After two-year experience of acting as the Chinese Representative Agency, EACT is determined to initiate an International Youth Festival independently in 2011. For this time, we intend to integrate such a youth festival into UN's International Year of Youth by bringing youth all over the world to the capital city of China for them to have direct dialogues with Chinese youth. Meanwhile, we also hope such an event will trigger more following programs which aim to promote global youth get-together to exchange diverse cultural/educational perspectives and polish their leadership and entrepreneurial spirits.

US-China Cultural Exchange Promotion

EACT has been devoted to wide range of US-China cultural exchange activities. We deliberately formulated the "Chinese Cultural Expansion Plan" aiming to further US-China people-to-people exchanges, enhance Chinese cultural recognition among US folks as well as strengthen Sino-US and international partnership.

In order to make more Americans, especially US youth, to know Chinese culture, we have designed and implemented a series of lectures, trainings, and forums, etc. What is more, we also organize inter-country educational, cultural and arts exchanges and visits. Particularly, we designed summer and winter camps for youth of both countries, such as Parent-Child University Tour, SAT Training Camp, US Youth Leaders Training Camp, China Cultural/Arts Performance Tour and China Volunteer Action, etc.

Now the upcoming International Youth Festival means right to be responding to the US-China Joint Statement on November 17, 2009, which featured that two countries attached great importance to people-to-people and cultural exchanges, particularly to the "100,000 Strong" initiative announced by President Barack Obama. Therefore, EACT specifically plans to select and sponsor 100 outstanding youth from US to attend the IYF at the capital city of China in order to provide a valuable opportunity for them to have cultural communications with youth at China and from all over the world, especially for them to personally experience the development, openness, progress and freedom of modern China.

In a word, EACT will continuously keep its supreme vision of leveraging education for China tomorrow while we will always hold a global view to realize our main missions through trying to promote the overall educational level throughout the world.
