Volunteer in Morocco: An Introduction to Rabat

SAY "SALAM" TO YOUR NEXT BIG ADVENTURE

If you're searching for a destination that speaks to all of your senses, you'll find it as a volunteer in Morocco. The country's ancient medinas, quaint coastal towns, and vibrant spice markets remind you at every turn that you've left the familiar behind.

For many globetrotting volunteers, Morocco provides an eye-opening first-hand look into Islam and all of its beautiful and historied layers. In Rabat, you will find yourself welcomed by people eager to participate in cultural exchange to experience this remarkable part of the world firsthand.

...come prepared with an open heart and a healthy appetite...

When traveling as a volunteer in Morocco, be sure to come prepared with an open heart and a healthy appetite, but leave your preconceptions behind.

Rabat, one of Morocco's largest cities, has its share of social issues including high rates of unemployment, and, because it is illegal to have children out of wedlock, a great deal of children who are either homeless, or living on the street. As a Cross-Cultural Solutions volunteer in Morocco, you will have an opportunity to work with local people to address some of these pervasive social issues.

Volunteer in Morocco for a chance to improve education for children, assist with the care of infants and children, improve the quality of care for people with disabilities, or teach adult workshops on subjects that may include English skills, writing, vocational skills, or accounting. As a CCS volunteer in Morocco, you'll enjoy learning about the history and culture of a part of the world that you've always dreamed about as you lend your unique passion and experience working side-by-side with members of your new community.
