Program Overview

Program Description:

DISCOVER A KALEIDOSCOPE OF CULTURES WHILE LIVING, SERVING AND MENTORING IN THIS FRIENDLY MOROCCAN COMMUNITY.

This program is based out of the American Language Center (ALC), a non-profit with over 30 years of experience working with local NGOs on cross-cultural exchange. Through the ALC’s myriad outreach programs, you’ll work with local youth, collaborate with Moroccan peers, and learn to look at complex issues from multiple perspectives.

You’ll pack a lot into these three weeks, and options abound: Meet with government leaders, teachers and medical staff. Mentor underprivileged youth at a US embassy-sponsored summer camp. Run arts and crafts workshops for after-school programs. Create newsletters and contribute to international podcasts. Collaborate with peers to raise awareness on education, the environment, and a range of social issues.

Hot topics make for interesting discussions: Immigration. Women’s rights. The impact of Moroccan rap on society. The perception of Islam in America. With students from local high schools you’ll engage in conversations designed to make you think. You’ll also work together to put that collective energy into action — by working in teams to tackle social issues in creative ways.
