    This program is based out of the American Language Center (ALC), a non-profit with over 30 years of experience working with local NGOs on cross-cultural exchange. Through their myriad outreach programs, you will work with local youth, collaborate with Moroccan peers, and learn to look at complex issues from multiple perspectives.

    You will pack a lot into these three weeks, and options abound. Mentor underprivileged youth at a local association whose mission is to integrate youth into their community. Run arts and crafts workshops, help tutor English for after-school programs, and take part in planning and implementing environmental activities with local public schools. Create blog posts for the CIEE student blog and collaborate with peers to raise awareness on education, the environment, and a range of social issues. Hot topics make for interesting discussions: immigration, rights for women, the impact of Moroccan rap on society, the perception of Islam in America. With students from local high schools, you will engage in conversations designed to make you think. You will also work together to put that collective energy into action by working in teams to tackle social issues in creative ways. Living with a homestay family, you will get a warm welcome and a rare glimpse of Moroccan traditions. Together you will shop, prepare meals, and gather around the family table. In your free time, you can dabble in Moroccan pottery and play soccer, ping pong, or volleyball at the city beach. Added bonus: You will also have access to all ALC clubs and offerings: from sports, music, and movies to public speaking, debate, and Model UN.
