Internship placements include schools and community-based organizations serving vital human development needs at the grassroots level in Indonesia, Morocco, and Zanzibar. Students will serve full-time for 6 weeks, teaching English, building youth leadership, or assisting community-led projects.

In the process, they will form the type of people-to-people partnerships that are the future of international relations, and specifically America’s relationship with the Muslim World. Serving as an Unofficial Ambassador and then bringing the experience home at the community level will put students in the vanguard of a new generation of citizen diplomats.

 

In addition to volunteering full-time, our service interns study languages at local universities and learn about the culture and history of their host countries. They share their experiences through blogs and when they return home, they give presentations in their communities.
