Volunteer with AUA's 2013 summer service programs! Make a difference, represent America and gain hands-on experience in Morocco, Zanzibar or Indonesia.
This summer, the America's Unofficial Ambassadors initiative will launch new programs in Morocco, Zanzibar and Indonesia. The programs will place volunteers with local non-governmental organizations and schools for 5 to 12 weeks. Up to 24 Unofficial Ambassadors will volunteer at the grassroots level with organizations in each country dedicated to meeting the Muslim World's most urgent development needs, ranging from education and women's empowerment to economic development and protecting the environment.
AUA is a citizen diplomacy initiative of Creative Learning, a Washington DC-based not-for-profit organization. We are increasing the number of Americans who volunteer on a short-term basis in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Unofficial Ambassadors support local human development initiatives and act as positive examples of Americans abroad, creating people-to-people partnerships and dispelling stereotypes.
Upon their return, they foster cross-cultural understanding between America and the Muslim World by sharing their experiences through blogs and presentations in their home communities.
