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.
J.J. Harder, Cultural Affairs Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Morocco, made a surprise visit to our six volunteers in Ifrane, Morocco Friday, and got a first-hand look at the work of our Summer Service interns in action.
A team of unofficial ambassadors were on hand for the exciting visit and got to have one-on-one conversations with Mr. Harder about careers in international service and development, as well as their service work. During the summer, the six unofficial ambassadors are volunteering as teachers and summer camp leaders at the Al-Akhwayan University Azrou Center for Community Development and a nearby school in the small shepherding village of Tarmilaat.
We would like to thank Mr. Harder and everyone at the U.S. Embassy in Rabat for the visit. All of our volunteers were grateful for the opportunity. Many thanks as well to Country Coordinator Salaheddine Zekri for sending us these photos.
