Playing Dress Up

Brent Mullen is a 2012 AUA Mosaic Fellowship recipient and a volunteer English teacher in Jordan. To find an amazing volunteer opportunity, search the AUA Directory of Recommended Organizations© today.

Brent Mullen recently returned from Jordan where he taught English through an organization that focuses on international education called GeoVisions. Upon his return, he gave a presentation at a non-profit group named Dream Center,  a place that assists at-risk youth and their families. He has shared  his experience with us so far:

The audience was great and the elementary kids were concerned more with trying on the robe and turban more than anything. The high school kids were really interested and asked lots of questions. 

He plans on giving more presentations in the upcoming weeks, one specifically to an audience of high school aged children at a center called Youth Resources. Below are some pictures of his recent presentation.
