Welcome to GWK Academy! Our goal is to help you navigate your journey to fatherhood with confidence by giving you the information, resources, and connections you need before you get started. So when you do get started, you’re feeling informed and ready to go. Oh, yeah… we’re also happy to act as a sounding board or cheering squad, whatever you need.

Whether you want to learn what your options are to become a dad, or you’re ready to start your adoption, foster-adopt, or surrogacy journey, GWK Academy has you covered.

You can download GWK Academy in the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, or from the web.

These guides include lessons such as how much a path costs, to the language you should know, to how to select LGBTQ+ affirming and experienced family-building partners. On top of that, each lesson was written specifically for gay men by GWK and our team of family-building experts.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm not sure what path best fits me?

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.

How do I get started?

The best way to get started is to download the app and go through our free "Introduction to GWK Academy" lesson, which will give you a general overview of how GWK Academy works and your options to fatherhood: Adoption / Foster-Adopt OR Surrogacy.
