In partnership with Educating Girls of Rural China, ACYA is very pleased to announce that an opportunity has arisen for two volunteers to participate in a one week English teaching program in Gansu or in Guizhou this coming Summer holiday from 3rd – 8th of August, 2017.
Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC) is an organisation dedicated to providing high school and university education to promising but disadvantaged girls from rural regions in Western China. For girls from these regions in China, their opportunities are often hindered by both financial hardship and a traditional preference favouring men in the community.
ACYA is proud to support The 2nd Annual Asian Australian Leadership Summit 2017.
Across two days on the 18th and 19th of July at Rydges World Square, Sydney, the summit will tackle the theme: “Overcoming Adversity, Seizing Opportunity”.
As part of a new initiative, a spotlight will be put on all the cool things ACYA alumni have been doing to advance the Australia-China relationship. To kick things off, Hayden Wilkinson interviewed Sam Mugford.
