More background information about the IYF
The first US-China International Youth Festival（IYF） was held between July 12, 2011 and August 6, 2011 in China. IYF was initiated and hosted by Education Association for China Tomorrow（EACT）, one US 501（C）（3）non-profit organization. Through the Global Development Youth Summit, volunteer teaching, and cultural immersion programs, IYF provided an excellent platform for youths from all over the world to exchange ideas and perspectives on mutual understanding, self-improvement, youth entrepreneurship and career development, climate and environmental sustainability issues, and the realization of the Eight Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations.
The first IYF was officially included in "UN's International Year of Youth"（From August 12, 2010 to August 11, 2011）which gained plenty supports from related governmental agencies as well as a good number of organizations and individuals from US, China and many other countries. Participating parties include US Embassy in Beijing, World Bank, World Health Organization, UN-Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UN-Volunteer, Dream Corps International, Civic Concepts International, and several renowned universities and institutions. Other supporting organizations are US Department of State-"100,000 Strong Initiative", American Congressmen, the State governments of Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia, Chinese Embassy in the United States- Department of Education, International Monetary Fund, top-ranked universities like Harvard, Yale and Cornell, and many overseas Chinese groups.
