The aim of the Arabic Outreach Program is to reach out to local elementary and middle schools in order to host educational presentations and activities dedicated to teaching students about cultural diversity in the Middle East and North Africa. The program also teaches young students the Arabic language as an introduction to a foreign language.
The Arabic Outreach Program strives to carry out activities on campus, and within the community, to give the local public a sense of the diversity and humanity of the Middle East and North Africa.
Volunteers were, and continue to be, essential to the outreach program. Over 15 FSU students volunteer to donate their time each semester. They serve the local community by educating students/individuals on the history, culture, and language of the Middle East and North Africa. The volunteers not only provide their free time, but also contact us with new ideas making them both helpful and intuitive as they help us enrich the program itself.
