The World Academy for the Future of Women began as a one year program for 100 university women from freshman to senior year, to a multi-year, multi-level program for both women and men. Today the Academy has five separate divisions comprised of members from all class levels, freshman through senior year. The division levels are:
· First Year World Academy for the Future of Women (Year 1 women)
· Advanced World Academy for the Future of Women (Year 2 women)
· Men’s Academy for the Future of Women (Year 1 men)
· Advanced Men’s Academy for the Future of Women (Year 2 men)
· World Academy in Action (Year 3 women and men)
BEING A WORLD ACADEMY MEMBER
World Academy members are chosen through a process of application, references and interviews. Students accepted as World Academy members participate 8-10 hours each week attending seminars, project research and design labs, open forums, and coaching sessions. In addition, members become a team member in one of the World Academy Projects focused on one or more of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Advanced members may create new projects or enlarge the scope of an existing project. No academic credit is given to World Academy members. World Academy Members pay no fees to participate in the World Academy.
WORLD ACADEMY FACILITATOR BODY
Others choose to be a World Academy facilitator and make a commitment to travel to an Academy site for five weeks and deliver a four (4) week module of the World Academy curriculum, aligning their unique experience and expertise with the World Academy curriculum outcomes. Facilitators assume their own transportation costs and the host site provides housing and meals during their stay at the Academy site. No remuneration is provided for facilitator services. More than 65 facilitators have generously delivered the World Academy curriculum over the last five years.
Facilitator orientations can be requested and scheduled when a group of 10 or more women or men request to participate. Organizations and associations are invited to partner with the World Academy to promote the growth of the Facilitator Body or sponsor one of their members to be a World Academy Facilitator.
