Welcome to Azrou: A letter from Mohamed

Mohamed, our Morocco Country Director, is thrilled to be able to offer a new site in Morocco, available immediately for both our High School volunteers, and student groups. In an open letter below, he describes why our new ventures in the community of Azrou is important to him, as well as the impact he hopes to make with the help of our volunteers.

“Dear Future Morocco Volunteer,


Is Cross-Cultural Solutions right for you?

So you've decided that you need a change of pace. Maybe you have a week's worth of vacation days to use before the end of the year, or perhaps you're in a moment of transition and have decided that a 12-week adventure is exactly what you need to shake things up a bit. But either way, one thing is for sure: you're looking for an experience that will change everything. But with all of the options out there—all of the different ways in which you can choose to explore the world—how can you ensure that you're choosing the best international experience for you?

What is a typical day like?

As a High School Volunteer Abroad participant, your days are action-packed. Each weekday morning following a delicious breakfast, you’ll join other teens to complete meaningful service work directly with local community members. Return to the Home-Base for lunch with our full, local staff before beginning the afternoon Cultural Activities, which include excursions to local points of interest, language lessons, cooking classes, guest speakers, team building and leadership exercises, and much more to fully immerse and educate you about the culture and country. Of course, a family-style dinner of healthy, local cuisine is always provided, and structured activities are also included on evenings and weekends. Whether you’re playing soccer with our in-country staff, enjoying a game night, or on a weekend trip to a nearby destination, you’ll enjoy that perfect balance of unique activities with time to reflect on your experience and develop lifelong friendships with the exceptional global teens on your program—all from the comfort and safety of a Home-Base.

Each schedule is created to address current needs of the local community and for interesting cultural events and celebrations, but check out a sample high school schedule to learn a bit more about all the exciting activities we have planned!
