CelebrAsian is an annual festival that the Iowa Asian Alliance holds. This year it will be on Saturday, May 12. They recruit a couple hundred volunteers every year to work at the festival for a few hours each. A leadership team of 20-30 people work year round to plan the event, and college students who are interested would be welcome to join the team.
There is a communications internship (currently filled) that involves website design and writing a weekly newsletter for members.
The Iowa Asian Alliance serves all Asian countries – 14 different countries will be represented at CelebrAsian.
The Alliance does not work directly with Asian immigrants, but it works to promote volunteer opportunities with other organizations that work with Asian immigrants.
