Create a Campus Chapter

We are seeking leaders on college campuses or community organizations ready to mobilize for peace and cultural understanding.

CHAPTER PRESIDENTS: THE HEART OF OUR ORGANIZATION

BECAUSE CHANGE BEGINS WITH YOU.

AUA Chapter Leaders are an essential galvanizing force to empower others to change the world through service abroad. Mobilize your friends and classmates to dismantle harmful stereotypes and foster understanding between Muslim and non-Muslim communities. Your work at home will prepare you and your chapter to volunteer abroad in a Muslim community, where you’ll work to increase education and literacy, improve health through sports and nutrition, bolster technological infrastructure and training, support refugees, or empower women. Whether you choose to immerse yourself in Muslim culture in Morocco, illuminate the realities of Muslim refugees in Greece, or integrate with Muslim migrants in India, you’ll return home with first-hand, lived experience to better advocate for Muslims in your community and around the world. Learn more and apply to be an AUA Campus Chapter Leader today to start the movement on your campus!

MENTORING

we’ll be with you every step of the way.

AUA Chapter leaders are the engine behind our organization and we are here to support you through every step of the process. We enthusiastically go beyond helping you create an AUA chapter, to prepare your group for their international volunteer program, and sharing your newfound experiences when you get home to cultivate lifelong passions for advocacy work. We will make sure you know how to skillfully, sensitively, and effectively amplify the voices of marginalized people by sharing their stories, before, during, and long after your international immersion experience.
