Program Overview

Program Description:

MOBT’s Summer Abroad Program is designed for U.S. college or high school students who are 18 years of age or older. During the program, MOBT will take participants on a discovery of Moroccan hospitality and its cultural diversity, within ancient cities, and in the heart of Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains. Upon arrival in Morocco, MOBT’s support team will welcome and greet participants at the Casablanca International Airport.  Throughout the program, participants will practice speaking Arabic and French with their host-family members and friends as well as engage in panel discussions with Moroccan students and guest speakers.  In the program, participants will take part and contribute to a number of community service projects such as building irrigation canals in remote villages, planting trees, and teaching English to low income students. Service projects will take place in both urban and rural locales with Moroccan students and community leaders. In addition to these leadership activities, a portion of the program will include a variety of captivating excursions and experiences.

Setting Description:
Though Morocco shows us a land of great differences, we come to see how devotion to Islam unites the Amazigh and the Arab. Summer youth program participants will have wonderful opportunities to learn about the history and tradition of Islam and Muslim culture through homestay experience with Moroccan families in the city of Sefrou and in the Berber village of Imilchil in the high Atlas Mountains. Our time will be an immersion in Morocco’s unrivalled hospitality; families will welcome you as kin and most of them want to get to know you as a person and hope to continue the friendship after the homestay.Our program participants will have chance to meet and participate in craft workshops and visit imperial cities such as Fez, Rabat and Marrakech as well as getting to know Jewish history by visiting and experiencing the only Jewish museum in the Islamic Arab world in Casablanca and Jewish heritage walk in the city of Sefrou.
