" I visited MOBT in 2015 at their office in Sefrou, Morocco to discuss homestay and service learning options in the area and was impressed with their hospitality and extensive knowledge of the region. The staff members showed me neighborhoods and community centers that I would not have been able to visit on my own without their deep connections in the city. I had great discussions with the staff members about culture, urbanization, tourism, and community service projects. MOBT showed great capacity to develop wonderful service learning ideas for student groups that paired American students and Moroccan youth to complete service projects for the community. MOBT also had wonderful ideas for cultural activities for American students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of Moroccan culture. Each activity was well thought out and presented in a professional manner that outlined the details, purpose, and goal of each activity. Community service projects were outlined with descriptions of the project, educational purpose of the project for the students, and impact on the local community. I very much appreciated their attention to detail and emphasis on student learning. I found working with MOBT to be a pleasure! Communication was easy and staff members had no problem understanding program goals and turning ideas into thoughtful activities and projects geared toward student learning and positive community impact."
