America's Unofficial Ambassadors

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.

Not A Cheesy Valentine’s Day

 
The following post is from contributing blogger and social media intern Mary Kazarian. Mary is an undergraduate at George Mason University studying the Middle East and International Relations and hopes to one day move to her native land of Lebanon.
 

       As much as we love holidays, most of us can agree that Valentine’s Day is the one that receives the most love. Over here at AUA, we felt the love! During the past fundraiser held on the notorious holiday, Creative Learning and America’s Unofficial Ambassadors raised approximately $2110 dollars to fund the plane tickets for our volunteers and Unofficial Ambassadors for the upcoming School-2-School program.

       School-2-School is a unique program that facilitates partnerships between schools in America and schools abroad. This summer, S2S  is bringing together schools in Indonesia and Bangladesh with schools in Texas and Pennsylvania. The excitement is building as AUA continues to spread messages of volunteering to create mutual understanding and overall peace between America and the Muslim world.
