Community Engagement and Outreach Workgroup is a subgroup within APAOC which supports APAOC's mission by increasing awareness about the Corps and providing opportunities for APAOC members to actively serve in AAPI communities. The Community Engagement and Outreach Workgroup oversees all current community engagements and Healthy Mind Initiative Campaign activities. 

Healthy Mind Initiative Campaign is a collaborative effort among the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), federal, and county government partners, AAPI community organizations and leadership. It highlights the importance of mental health literacy by educating about mental illness, substance misuse, and suicide among AAPI youth, with a focus on prevention and early detection.
