Recognizing that culture is a vital social asset, NetMAA works with community and cultural leaders to design programs that build long-term social bonds and increase public participation through outreach programs. NetMAA holds various programs throughout the year to benefit the Myanmar-American community including several arts and culture events, a film festival, photo exhibitions, concerts, a Labor Day weekend excursion (the Annual Myanmar Families Adventure), and U.S. Immigration service assistance.

Within a short period, NetMAA’s community outreach programs have grown from one non-art program in 2006 to five programs in 2008. NetMAA achieved these major milestones with very limited funds. In 2009, NetMAA presented eight outreach programs throughout the year to benefit the Myanmar-American community. NetMAA’s community outreach programs get funding through sponsorships, donors, grants, benefit concerts, and a Los Angeles food fair.
