About AACO

Working hand-in-hand with the Community

Asian Americans for Community Outreach (AACO) is an organization dedicated to creating a forum in the San Francisco Bay Area where Asian American professionals and students can meet and foster the common goal of community service, benefiting the extended community as a whole.

AACO members can be found throughout the Bay Area. AACO organizes community service and social events and promotes awareness of social and political issues relevant to Asian Americans. By bringing together people from many diverse fields, AACO hopes to pool its members' knowledge, strength, and experience to make a positive impact on our community.

AACO Leadership Opportunity Drive


Month of July


San Francisco Bay Area



Asian Americans for Community Outreach (AACO) has been providing volunteers to the San Francisco Bay Area community for over 20 years. We help at a wide range of community services ranging from homeless shelters and food banks to youth and seniors programs to helping non-profits do fundraising events. We have been able to sustain this service to the community through our volunteers but also by the commitment of people willing to organize and lead community service events.

AACO is searching for new, energetic people to operate the organization and coordinate events. Positions available range from coordinating staff, developing community relationships, searching for new volunteer opportunities, recruiting volunteers, keeping volunteers connected, updating websites, and leading events. AACO has built up a solid reputation in the Asian American community and non-profit social service network.

This is a great opportunity to develop organizational skills, develop a network, and contribute to the community. But also the world of volunteerism is changing and we want to keep up. Demographics, social media, social needs. They are all very dynamic, so we are looking for ways to adapt and change our traditional models of outreach and the way we serve the community - whether it by offering Meetups, Facebook and Instagram connections, providing mentorship and leadership training. We welcome ideas.

We are focusing on recruiting new staff for the month of July. If you are interested in big or small opportunities to be involved, please contact Derek at the e-mail address above.
