ACK is a physical location and a collaborative laboratory where all citizens can explore and be inspired by new ideas, skills, and opportunities that have the power to bring positive change to individual lives, communities, the host country, bilateral and regional relations, and global challenges. ACK also enhances training and transfer of both hard and soft skills.

ACK Youth Coordinator

ACK Youth Coordinators (YCs) are a group of young volunteers at American Center Korea of the U.S. Embassy in Seoul. American Center Korea began this volunteer program in July 2006 to engage with university students and to provide opportunities for YCs to explore U.S. society, history, and culture through participating in diverse public diplomacy programs. After successfully completing one year of volunteer work, YC members receive official certificates from the U.S. Embassy.
