Focusing on communities with pressing human needs, Creative Learning enhances the capacity of local organizations around the world to improve the lives of people in their communities. Through the creation of people-to-people partnerships, we are especially dedicated to protecting human rights, supporting economic and social development, and building peace.
America's Unofficial Ambassadors is a strategic nitiative of Creative Learning. The underlying premise of America’s Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) is that private American citizens have to do more to improve America’s relationship with the Muslim World. To complement our government’s programs and efforts, we seek to galvanize the power of people to reach across cultural differences, form partnerships of mutual interest, and build peace. Not coincidentally, public opinion polling shows that our people are America’s greatest asset around the world. From archaeologists to musicians to engineers, America’s Unofficial Ambassadors, i.e. private citizens representing America through deeds of service, have created a tradition that represents diversity, equality, creativity, and optimism.
Through short-term volunteer service in key areas of human development, Creative Learning is interested in supporting America’s Unofficial Ambassadors to:
- Help address human development deficits throughout the Muslim World
- Build positive people-to-people connections between the Muslim World and America
- Decrease Islamophobia in the United States
By increasing the number of America’s Unofficial Ambassadors to the Muslim World we can begin to address these problems.
