Arabic Language & Community Service Program

The Arabic Language & Community Service Program is designed to 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. The goal of this program is to bring a sense of global social responsibility through community service and interaction with local communities. A core component of this program is an Arabic language class that the participants will attend daily. Throughout the program, participants will also practice speaking Arabic 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 in 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.
