Now Accepting Applications for Summer Service 2015! - America's Unofficial Ambassadors

Volunteer as one of America's Unofficial Ambassadors through our 2015 Summer Service Internship Program!  

Make a difference in the lives of others, gain professional experience, represent America, and earn academic credit, all while having a life-changing experience in Indonesia, Morocco, Tajikistan, Turkey or Zanzibar.

As a summer service intern, you'll volunteer full-time for six weeks with a non-governmental organization or school at the grassroots-level in Asia, Africa, or the Middle East. Our NGO partners are working in fields like human rights, women's empowerment, youth leadership, public health and environmental conservation. Our school partners range from public high schools in the winding alleys of Stonetown, Zanzibar to a one-room village school the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Unofficial ambassadors will intern as communications officers, teachers, and camp counselors as they form the type of people-to-people partnerships that are the future of international relations, and specifically America's relationship with the Muslim World. They will study the local language, learn about their host community's culture, and publish
 on the America's Unofficial Ambassadors' blog. Upon returning home, unofficial ambassadors give presentations in their communities that represent their experience, the people they met, and what they built together.

Over the last two years, 41 exceptional undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students from 20 different colleges and universities have served as unofficial ambassadors to communities in four countries.

Application deadline: February 16, 2015
