Here are several chances to increase Arabic and Middle East content at your school or to travel to the region. There are opportunities to host native Arabic teachers at your school or to participate in sponsored study visit programs and gain first-hand knowledge of the region and its rich culture. The DC Center for Global Education and Leadership promotes these opportunities in pursuit of its mission to connect D.C. area students to the world around them.In addition to student enrichment programs, there are also travel, support, and funding possibilities for teachers.  Deadlines are quickly approaching for many of the opportunities! D.C.- area teachers can also take advantage of teaching workshops hosted by Georgetown University.
