Asian Studies Center Volunteer Application

ASC is always seeking both students at the University of Pittsburgh and community members to assist with educational outreach programs through our Student Participants Program. Students and community members at any level of undergraduate or graduate education are welcome to apply!

Volunteers assist with programs for Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade students, as well as community activities and events. Previous Asian language study can be helpful but isn't required, and an interest in Asian culture and working with students is preferred. There are no minimum requirements for event assistant - join us once a year or once a month!

(For example, knowing martial arts, origami, calligraphy, musical instruments, dance, or other cultural activities; familiarity with pop culture/television/comics of an Asian nation; etc. )

Please note that a number of child safety clearances may be required if you wish to volunteer with minors. The Asian Studies Center can provide guidance on the process but cannot reimburse you for the expenses of obtaining these clearances.
