Empowered to Make a Difference
You have the power to make a difference in our world. When you commit to an AUA summer service internship, you’ll join students from over 25 universities who have served in AUA Muslim communities over the last four years. Interns are empowered to make a difference at a grassroots level with our global health, child development, and women’s empowerment initiatives.
This year, you will have the opportunity to learn and serve in Morocco, a moderate Muslim country in North Africa at the intersection of a variety of cultures, religions, and languages. Through your service work, as well as your day-to-day experiences, you’ll learn about the lives and realities of modern Muslims. In particular, you’ll have the opportunity to make an impact in the Atlas Mountains, a region of Morocco that lies far from the reach of urban-based social services organizations.
A Summer of Service
By interning with our local partner organizations, you’ll not only support access to human rights and resources, but you’ll also form people-to-people partnerships that are the future of international relations. As important as your service and learning will be during your international internship, your work in your home community upon your return will be just as crucial. Learn about Muslim life in Morocco, make a difference, and share your knowledge and passion when you return back home.
