Thank you ITD for creating this project that gave me the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone, [to] get on my first plane, and to form so many incredibly strong bonds that I know will last a lifetime.

PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS

SPAIN AND THE NETHERLANDS MUSLIM IMMIGRATION AND INTEGRATION, 2007-2009

The goal of ITD`s projects in Spain and the Netherlands was to provide a deep and well-rounded educational experience for participants in each country`s historical and current context. The projects aimed to develop intra- and inter-national collaboration to improve services for Muslim youth, and to foster an appreciation for new forms of cultural and social development.

Stateside programs for both of these projects took place in 2007, as did the exchange trip to Spain. The exchange trip to the Netherlands was in 2008.  The projects were concluded by in-depth evaluations by an independent evaluator.

The projects were funded by the Bureau for Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. They were co-funded by the U.S. Embassy in Spain, and by the Ministries of Home Affairs and Justice in the Netherlands.
