About PAAC

The Pacific and Asian Affairs Council (PAAC) is an independent, international education 501(c)3 nonprofit with over 60 years of experience in connecting Hawaii to the Asia-Pacific region and the world. Our travel program’s emphasis on safety and local collaboration ensures that students are offered one-of-a-kind opportunities to connect what they see and encounter not only with their school curricula, but also with their day-to-day lives and future aspirations.
PAAC is preparing the next generation of leaders for an increasingly interconnected world, and promoting citizen diplomacy one handshake at a time. Since 1954, PAAC has provided global education to more than 89,651 high school students and 82,950 community members statewide. Find out more at www.paachawaii.org
