Volunteering, Service activities, and experiential learning are cornerstone of Qalam wa lawh Arabic language centers.  It is through them that students can build connections with the local community, practice Arabic in authentic settings, and live first-hand experiences that help them understand the Arabic community and culture.

Qalam wa Lawh students have the opportunity to participate in volunteer  activities at various NGOs in Rabat and during their scheduled weekend trips around Morocco (Tangier, Chefchaouen, Marrakech).

About Program

Since 2007,  Qalam wa Lawh students have the opportunity to volunteer in Morocco and participate in short to mid-term projects serving the local community. As the capital of Morocco, Rabat is home to many NGOs, government organizations, embassies, and multinational corporations. It is a large sprawling city interconnected with smaller neighboring communities and villages. Rabat is a destination for many of the nation's poor, immigrants, and refugees looking for employment and opportunity.

Volunteer Program Highlights:
-Volunteer in Rabat and neighboring cities
-Volunteer with reputable organizations
-Possibility for individual or group placement
-Dedicated community coordinator for support and assistance
-Language support while volunteering
-Housing is available at the student residence or with Moroccan Host families.
-Transportation to and from volunteer activities is provided for school-sponsored projects.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
