I gained a lot of new friends and new knowledge. I made friends from 3 other US states, Tunisia, and the UK. These are people I will stay in touch with, too. I learned a lot of Arabic, and through talking to people, broke out of my comfort zone and became a more confident person in general. - Ohio State University - Columbus View Entire Review
It was so worthwhile! I have a lot of friends from the trip--my American colleagues, British students, and Tunisian students. - Seattle Pacific University View Entire Review

About

This program has a front-loaded, 15 contact-hour crash course in Tunisian Arabic or Tunisian Sign Language (for students fluent in American Sign Language only), together with Amideast Education Abroad's Community-Based Learning (CBL) course, a 45 contact-hour course about contemporary Tunisia that helps students contextualize their worksite experiences.

To complete the experience, students will have a work placement of approximately 150 total hours with a Tunisian NGO or non-profit. Placements are available in English, French, Arabic, and Tunisian Sign Language (must be fluent in American Sign Language). Placements are available in a range of fields, some indicated here, and Amideast is always partnering with new organizations.

*Applicants should indicate three fields of professional/academic interest for potential worksite placements and submit a resume or CV.  Amideast does not guarantee placement in a first choice or particular field of interest, nor with any particular organization.  Amideast does its best to match participants with a worksite partner whose mission and workload closely aligns with students’ learning and experiential goals for participation in the program.
