America’s Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) promotes American volunteerism and international exchange in the Muslim world. Following an extensive review of African American Islamic Institute(AAII) programs, policies and opportunities for volunteerism, America’s Unofficial Ambassadors has chosen AAII for inclusion in its forthcoming “Directory of Recommended Organizations.” In January, 2011, the AUA will launch its online Directory of approximately 40 organizations that offer “non-specialist opportunities for Americans to volunteer in Muslim-majority countries.”
Based upon a review that included interviews with AAII’s Vice President of Global Affairs, Ayisha R. Jeffries, and several returned AAII volunteers, the AUA is recommending AAII as a “quality organization that provides meaningful opportunities for service.”
AAII looks forward to welcoming new volunteers as a result of this significant endorsement of the opportunities it offers. Those interested in volunteering with AAII may complete the form on www.aaii.info or www.shifaal-asqam.com to volunteer within the Shifa-al-Asqam Socio-Medical Center.
