The program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of State, also gives participants the opportunity to gain an appreciation for American culture and democratic values, increases their ability to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their countries, and improve their chances of participating in U.S. educational and exchange programs. The program promotes tolerance and the acceptance of cultural differences. U.S. cultural traditions and holidays are celebrated and fused with similar Egyptian events in an attempt to bridge cultural gaps.
The program will be offered in the following governorates:
- Aswan (Kom Ombo)
- North Sinai (El Arish)
