As cultural exchange leaders and Austin neighbors, Alliance Abroad Group (AAG) shares GAACC’s passion for driving economic growth for businesses with ties to Asia and Asian Americans.
We are proud sponsors of the Korea WEST Intern program, a joint venture between the U.S. State Department and the South Korean Ministry of Education. The program’s purpose is to foster international relations between the U.S. and South Korea.
We are currently sponsoring Korean students who are looking for internship opportunities in the United States. Candidates are eager to put their education into a practical business application, improve their English speaking skills and learn more about our country and communities. In our 27 years of experience with international exchange programs, we know that these programs serve to strengthen the ties between global citizens, creating lasting professional and personal value and connection.
The Korean students and recent graduates are pursuing a variety of academic degrees but share a common desire to enhance their education and resume, expand their perspectives and contribute to an American business as an intern. If your business has a need for an enthusiastic and educated intern and you want to provide opportunities to support the Asian community in America, we encourage you to become a host employer.
At a time when there is so much concern about the future state of U.S. visa and immigration policies, we must stand together, united in our belief that these types of programs that allow people from around the world to connect and collaborate are more important than ever. Our passion for the work we do centers on the tremendous positive impact of cultural exchange. We know that bringing people together serves to educate and enlighten, eliminating prejudice, intolerance and misunderstanding. AAG has always been a company that believes tearing down walls is far more powerful in creating peace and prosperity than building walls of separation.
The best chance we have of protecting the values of this country – inclusion, equality, justice and tolerance – is to stand together bonded our common belief in those important principles. We can demonstrate both our commitment to advancing foreign relations and pride in our ancestral heritage by exposing more, not fewer, people to our great nation.
The GAACC mission is to promote Asian American community and community at large as a catalyst for local and global economic growth through advocacy, connections and education. We ask your enthusiastic support of the advocacy initiatives:
“We engage with public officials at multiple levels: City of Austin, county, state (MBE Public Policy Day), and federal through our membership with National ACE. At the national policy level, we support increasing opportunities for Asian Pacific American (APA) entrepreneurs, international trade, immigration reform, disaggregation of APA data and workforce leadership. Locally, we advocate on behalf of our members and the APA community at large to assist them with their business objectives.”
