Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
American Citizens Abroad, Inc. (ACA, Inc.), the voice of Americans overseas, is a Washington, DC based, non-profit, non-partisan, volunteer organization advocating for Americans living and working outside the US to the Executive Branch, Congressional and Judicial branches of the US Government. ACA’s mission has been to bring to the attention of the US Government the issues and concerns facing the community of Americans overseas and to work with Congress and other branches of government on solutions to problems facing this community. ACA actively looks for ways to improve the lives of Americans overseas and works to implement these. ACA, Inc. is a membership organization.. Its structure and operations fall within the rules applicable to an exempt social welfare organization (section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code). Alongside it is American Citizens Abroad Global Foundation, organized as a publicly-supported charity under section 501(c)(3).
ACA has been advocating for nearly 40 years on behalf of Americans living and working overseas. As the environment for US citizens abroad has evolved, so have the issues.
The problems US citizens face while living abroad are not static. ACA collects information from our membership and monitors the most recent changes in US legislation that affects US citizens abroad. ACA’s network of Country Contacts also filters information into ACA, letting our management know about specific issues affecting Americans in their jurisdictions.
ACA works to develop practical and implementable proposals to solve the problems and issues that US citizens abroad are facing. ACA uses best practices in its advocacy work and this is what sets ACA apart.
