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.

AUA partners with Everyday Ambassador to prepare our volunteers for their summer of service!

Kate Otto, the founder of Everyday Ambassador and the author of the forthcoming book, Everyday Ambassador (Simon and Schuster 2015) led our Summer Service Interns in a great discussion as part of their pre-departure orientation 2for their assignments in Morocco, Tajikistan, and Zanzibar this summer. Kate spoke about four main principles of empathy, patience, focus, and humility and answered our volunteers questions about lessons learned and her own experiences while working overseas and fostering meaningful partnerships.

You can watch the webinar here and learn more about Everyday Ambassador on Kate’s website.
