The Pacific & Asian Affairs Council


PAAC is preparing the next generation of leaders for an increasingly interconnected world, and promoting citizen diplomacy one handshake at a time. We are building bridges, inspiring young leaders, and developing global citizens.

The Pacific & Asian Affairs Council (PAAC) is an independent, international education 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission to promote understanding and empower engagement on global and international issues with special attention to Hawaiʻi’s role in the Asia-Pacific region.

Since 1954, PAAC has provided global education to over 100,000 Hawaiʻi high school students statewide.
