The Asian American Resource Center (AARC) offers a variety of ways for individuals, community groups and organizations to become involved. From collaborations to employment, take a look at how you can be a part of the AARC.


Our programs are initiated in response to community needs. Non-profits, community groups and individuals may suggest a program that is relevant to AARC and Parks and Recreation Department’s mission, values and audience. Collaborative programs must be offered to the public free of charge. If you have a program that meets the requirements, submit a Collaboration Request. We have also prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions for your convenience.
