We Cannot Change the World Alone, but If We Each Cast a Pebble Across the Water, We can Create Many Ripples
The Bilateral US-Arab Chamber’s Teachers Educating Across Cultures in Harmony (TEACH) Fellowship was conceived to actively engage U.S. and MENA educators in capacity building initiatives to produce a new generation of leaders equipped to provide solutions to the world’s most pressing social and economic issues.
TEACH was launched in 2009 as a vehicle to provide U.S. educators an opportunity to visit the Middle East and gain insight into the culture, the challenges and the opportunities experienced by their peers. The educators that participated were able to return to their classrooms, communities, and social settings and share first-hand experiences that reflected more similarities than differences. Through personal communications and professional exchanges, they began to replace misconceptions with awareness and inspire a new sense of purpose that ignited new possibilities for their students and their communities, the range of which is immeasurable.
Since 2009 through 2015:
Through their work in classrooms, community programs, national education conferences, and personal exchanges, these Fellows have indirectly touched millions of lives. They have eliminated millions of misconceptions about the Middle East and energized a new generation with innovating approaches to STEM education.
