Volunteering at the ACC

A lot of the events and services we provide at the ACC wouldn't be possible without our amazing and generous volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to connect with the IU and Bloomington communities. It’s also a good opportunity to build your resume.

Get involved at the ACC during your free time. We are flexible so you can fit the ACC into your schedule. If you are interested, give us a call at (812) 856-5361 or email

Consider volunteering in one or two of the following programs:

Asian Language Learning Program

Are you fluent in speaking and/or writing in an Asian language? Would you like to share your skills and volunTeach a one-hour language class every week for 12-16 weeks in the fall, spring, or summer session? We are looking for volunteers to teach an informal language class/es in Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, Hindi, Tagalog, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, and more. If interested, please fill out and send us this form.

English Tutoring/Peer Support Service

A FREE mentoring service to IU students led by peer mentors. Peer mentors will provide advice, support, attention, and kindness to students who would like some guidance with cultural adjustment, campus life, and schoolwork. These one-on-one meetings may also be an opportunity for students to practice conversational English and meet new friends. If you would like to be a student volunteer/tutor, please fill out and send us this form.

Weekly Asian Games

On Fridays, the ACC hosts Weekly Asian Games, when people walk in to learn or play Go and Mahjong. If you know how to play either of these games, you can volunteer to teach them. Alternatively, if there is another Asian game you know, we would love to have you teach it, too! Just fill out and send us this form if you are interested.

Special assistance at cultural events

We could always use extra hands at the ACC, particularly at special events. If you enjoy making crafts, performing at cultural events, or would like to help out in event set up or clean up, feel free to volunteer! All you have to do is fill out and send us this form.

You can also help by donating to the Asian Culture Center. Your contribution will support the mission of the Asian Culture Center as a place to build friendships, to learn, and to grow together.

Thank You

The ACC's work would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers and the support of our IU and Bloomington community. Thank you!
