We work at the grassroots level throughout the Muslim World to counter violent extremism before it takes hold, to promote tolerance and understanding, and to foster better relations with the United States.

Kicking It Off Right in Jordan: School, Soccer & More

The following is a post from AUA Network member and School 2 School volunteer Brittney Scott. Brittney , a Teach for America corps member, and her students at Panorama High School in Colorado Springs, CO are partnering with Queen Noor High School in Al Wehdat, Amman. Brittney and her students are raised money to purchase an interactive SMART Board for the students in Amman this past week and is training Jordanian teachers on how to use the board. Her boyfriend Fox will be running a soccer camp with students at the school.  Check out their new friends below! To learn more about the School 2 School Initiative, click here.
