How do I get started?
The best way to get started is to first visit gwkacademy.com or download the app. Then go through our free "Introduction to GWK Academy" course, which will give you a general overview of how GWK Academy works and your options to fatherhood: Adoption / Foster-Adopt OR Surrogacy.
How am I supposed to know which path to fatherhood to choose?
Trust us...we know first-hand just how complicated it can be for gay men to have children! That's why we created GWK Academy: To educate you on your options and help you decide which path to fatherhood is best for your family!
I'm interested in multiple paths?
Not a problem. With GWK Academy, you have the option to select just one course or both. No doubt after a careful review of all that's involved in both adoption / foster-adopt AND surrogacy, you will be able to choose the one that's best for your family.
I'm already in the middle of my journey, can GWK Academy still help me?
Absolutely! Some folks sign-up to get help finding family-building partners or to get introduced to a mentor (a gay dad who has recently traveled a similar path to fatherhood), or even just to use us as a sounding board. We are here to help, wherever you are along your journey.
Is GWK Academy available as an App?
Yes! GWK Academy can be downloaded on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. After downloading, use the same login details to pick up exactly where you left off.
