Washington Association for American and Chinese Education (WAACE) is a student-run, nonprofit organization dedicated to creating awareness and generating interest in the Chinese language and culture, as well as connecting Chinese learning with other subject areas in the US education system.
Our goal is to give US students the competitive edge and global perspective needed to succeed in the modern-day economy, and to increase Chinese language learning capacity in Washington.
