The America’s Unofficial Ambassadors Summer Service Internship Program places volunteers with schools or grassroots in NGOs in Indonesia, Morocco, Tajikistan or Tanzania.
Unofficial Ambassadors build relations between America and the Muslim World by interning full-time with a school or grassroots organization in the Muslim World for 6 weeks. In the process, volunteers gain hands-on professional experience, learn local languages, and can earn academic credit from their university.
