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.

Zeeshan Shad Presents

The role of an Unofficial Ambassador doesn’t stop when they return home. Each one of our ambassadors in the Summer Service Internship program, for instance, commits to giving at least 1 to 2 presentations in their home communities to share the partnership-building experiences they had abroad.

That’s why we’re so happy to note that Zeeshan Shad, who served with distinction this summer in Zanzibar as an English language teacher, will be taking part in a panel discussion this weekend, Aug. 18 hosted by The Aligarh Muslim University Alumni Association in Gaithersburg, MD.

Zeeshan will be on a panel of students talking about internships to help current and future students prepare for interning, a great opportunity to talk about his work in Zanzibar and the people he met along the way.
We’ll have more presentations from returned service interns taking place in the coming months, so stay tuned for more. And thank you to Zeeshan and all of our returned Summer Service interns for all your hard work
