Sow the seeds of cross-cultural understanding in the Arab world from June 22 – August 18, with the option to gain an accredited TEFL certification.
In partnership with Neighborhoods Association Idmaj, you will spend your summer working with Moroccan youth in community centers, teaching English and life skills. Your first week in Morocco is spent in the country’s largest city, Casablanca, during which your days are filled with orientation training sessions and group excursions to explore the history and culture of Morocco. Orientation lecturers and sessions will be led by locals, offer daily Arabic lessons, and provide information sessions to help you transition into teaching and integrate into local culture. During the program, volunteers live with host families to see more of life in this fascinating country described by the late King Hassan II as being “like a tree whose roots lie in Africa but whose leaves breathe in Europe.”
