Arab Peace Corp is a Non-Profit Organization. Motivated by then US President John Kennedy’s Peace Corps, the Arab Peace Corps under the initiative of the New Arab Foundation’s vision and mission is first “to break the negative, strengthening the susceptible youth being used by ‘terrorists’ to battle against what they are told is the reason for their suffering. Eventually, they are most of the time executed in the battle, a circumstance that is publicized with a specific end goal to reinvigorate the negative winding and to recruit more.”
He clarifies that the Arab Peace Corps would then work “toward actualizing advancement programs for less fortunate communities in the Arab world as well as in Europe, the US, and Canada. Changing the force and innocence of youth into positive, self-strengthening commitments for the better good of themselves and their general public will expand their feeling of having a place with their community, society, and country.”
“The Arab Peace Corps would be a voluntary service for two years employing the dedication, abilities and dynamism of school graduates and retirees from inside the Arab world as well as from the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia among others to assemble and rebuild devastated or underestimated communities in medical care, education, agriculture, artisan and small commercial ventures, public improvement and participation, instructional exercise and tutoring programs among numerous.”
“This public service would not just have a positive, helpful outcome to those communities; it would likewise give significant abilities and life experiences to the Arab people who volunteer and serve as the Arab Peace Corps members.
Why the Arab Peace Corps is essential to the Arab World
- Because Arab nations are encountering turmoil and clashes they have never seen since the colonial period, and their country states are undermined from within and without.
- Because trillions of dollars have been stolen from society building and utilized rather for wars or lost to management and corruption.
- Because huge sections of the Arab populaces are disappointed, jobless, baffled with the absence of essential services, economic opportunities, and government accountability and transparency.
- Because this has prompted a negative, self-propagating cycle in which regularly growing quantities of young fellows and ladies are without quality education or employment, prompting misery, sadness, and weaknesses which succumb them to join extremist groups.
- Because with commitment, new thinking, and projects receptive to society’s needs, we can divert the energy of the youth into positive, self-fortifying commitments to benefit the greater good through every individual’s accomplishment of a feeling of having a place in the society and a stronger sense of self-esteem.
- Because we aspire the Arab World to end up a model of the world contributing positively by today’s younger people attempting to reestablish communities and social orders to peace, solidness, financial improvement, and good administration.
These are the reasons the Arab Peace Corps is extremely essential. We request your support in changing the Arab world.
The Arab Peace Corps will mobilize the young generation today, young college graduates as well as skilled professionals to volunteer for two years to utilize their expertise and personal principles to serve in defenseless communities in the Arab world and Diaspora.
College graduates, skilled technicians, and artists will be formed into groups taking into account skills complementation with the necessities of specific activities or communities. Taking after a month of preparing, they will be sent for 22 months to a community to help, particularly young fellows and ladies, to learn new abilities, fortify the social fabric, and create occupation opportunities that will advance self-esteem, sustain family and unite the community, and will diminish vulnerability to radical groups. Our long-term objective is to have groups functioning in nations over North Africa and in the Middle East.
Established and experienced professionals highly skilled in developing communities will manage the work of the volunteer groups, giving tutoring, coaching and skills improvement for each volunteer and the groups.
The Arab Peace Corps will give volunteers food and lodging and a little living stipend. Volunteers who finish the full two years will be granted scholarships for graduate study with partnered universities. The New Arab Foundation will likewise work with organizations and governments to give occupation priority for the individuals who effectively finish their duty.
Envision volunteer groups made up of young Arabs, Amazighs, Circassians, Kurds, Armenians, all professionals, meeting up from all parts of the Arab World, extending from Morocco to North Africa through the Arabian Peninsula, Middle East, North America, Europe, Australia, and Latin America. These smart, devoted professionals -teachers, artists, engineers, health workers, craftsmen, entrepreneurs, environmentalists and others – embody the best in the Arab World, rich with its culture, tradition and values, religions and ethnicities.
Now envision many these groups, spread out over the Arab World and the Diaspora, doing community work to enhance essential health, basic education, infrastructure, job opportunities, and the environment. Inside these communities, volunteer groups concentrate on the dreams as well as disappointments of vulnerable youth, both men, and ladies, giving them the motivation to move in the direction of a positive future, dismissing them from fanaticism and viciousness, and preparing them for positive roles within their communities, to develop as opposed to demolishing. They encourage these groups as volunteers as well as cultural ambassadors.
Visualize the huge number of empowered youth professionals coming back to their communities following two years of genuine involvement in societies, with new abilities and understandings of the significant issues influencing the Arab World, prepared to tackle positive leadership in their groups, their social orders, and the worldwide community. Envision their communities respecting the service made by these volunteers upon their arrival, offering grants and employment priority.
At long last, envision the communities transformed that develop as an aftereffect of the work of these youth volunteers – communities with positive youth leaders, enhanced services, more employment, a better environment, and intensified security and peace.
This is the Arab Peace Corps’ vision, an initiative brought by the New Arab Foundation. We welcome you go along with us in transforming this vision into reality.
These are the reasons the Arab Peace Corps is indispensable imperative. We request your support in changing the Arab world.

- CARLAC: (Council for Arab Relations with Latin America and the Caribbean) The Arab league is seen as a dynamic, vibrant and fast-pacing zone due to its extensive investment base, indisputably crucial and opulent cultural heritage as well as its international energy assets. The more significant percentage of its population is untapped and energetic, thereby making a bold statement on the global economy and open areas.
- Similarly to the Arab world, Latin America also demonstrates same features with over 550 million of its population having Arab root while another other 17,000,000 people outside of the MENA zone have Arab lineage. Despite being part of the Middle East, they have mixed with the Latin America community and their culture with a significant success recorded in many areas of specializations most importantly in the R &D (i.e., research and development), commerce as well as politics. Combining all these advantages have been of the deciding factors in establishing a mutual collaboration between the Arab world and the Latin America; something that is feasible and regarded as necessary for the sound economic reinforcement, cultural and political bond.
- Over the last couple of years, Latin America has had a history of active socio-economic engagement and political disparity which can be subjected to discuss and support with the Arab league leading to significant major remodeling undertakes and economic record, the social, political development.
- Latin America, as well as the Arab world, is seen as beneficial investment destinations, not only that; they have also progress economically as well as the area of societal empowerments. Both continents have robust prospects of healthier bilateral dealings which cannot be overemphasized.
- Breaking forth of late is an unpretentious and strong tie between Latin America, the Arab league, and the Caribbean. The two decisive factors that have fueled this most crucial on-going situation in addition to profitable and socio-economic growth are the international fairness and collaboration.
- From a global point of view, the strong ties that exist between these regions are very paramount to the developmental sustainability, reduction of poverty, safeguarding the global, regional stability, addressing climate change, security strengthening, the creation of effective intercontinental financial policies and parameters. If these three regions can synergize together, carrying out their individual and collective projects and programs will very easy and the result will be of more significant benefits to all the parties as well as the global community.
The birth of the Council for Arab Relations with Latin America and the Caribbean (CARLAC)
- The Arab-Latin American Meeting is a conference that was graced by over one hundred top delegates and previous ministers from both the Arab league and Latin America to discuss ways of enhancing their economic ties. The summit was planned by the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development and the United Arab Emirates University, held in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. in the year 2012 fully sponsored by Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak Al Nahyan who was then the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research of U.A.E.
- The forum is an annual event in different countries in the region bringing experts to discover new investment prospects and build up to more contracts.
- The first forum was held in the Dominican Republic in July 2010. Costa Rica hosted the second forum in 2011 while the third edition took place in Columbia. Those delegates who attended the Abu Dhabi meeting recommended that the Council for Arab Relations with Latin America and the Caribbean (CARLAC) be formed to map-out, lead and assist in the consolidation of the Arab-Latin American ties. Another function of the council is to accentuate the influence of the obligation for financial and socio-cultural growth which can be accomplished by recognizing its mutual benefits for the populace of the two regions. Meanwhile, the parties involved have to be conscious of the fact that joint collective ideology and philosophies restrict them.
- The motivation to implement an all-inclusive society in the course of mutual assistance is what the CARLAC aim to actualize. CARLAC is set up to enhance sustainable progress in the Arab nations as well as their South American counterparts by developing a genuine shared understanding for the advancement and advantage of both areas.
- We must not deviate from the fact that, CARLAC is a non-profit and impartial association that is designed to harness, diverse, effective ways of developing the right set of networks that will look into a broad chain of negotiations and collective support on some concerns that are of investment-related mutual wellbeing as well as trade and exchange, higher education, investment related and cultural consultations.
- The first convention of the Council marking the actual organization of CARLAC was held in February 2014 at the Dominican Republic, an event that was chaired by the former President of Dominican Republic in the person of His Excellency and Highness Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak Al‐
- The council concluded at the peak of the event to construct two bases for each of the regions; one for LAC and the other for MENA to carry out the mission of the council as well as achieving all that the stood for effectively. The two subdivisions are to be organized for the program and strategy map out as well as evaluation and investigation development. Both LAC and MENA are projected to improve the economic state, civil society and the regional governments are expected to grow the financial state, civil society, and the provincial governments.
- The idea of having an Investment bank that will be focused on the regions and new formations were also tabled for discussions during the event. The proposed financial institution would aid and initialize investments and trade relationships between the entire areas.
- There are several areas of both regions that have attained economic advancement irrespective of their global financial situation and what they can benefit from more prominent commercial, trade, and business partnership to team up to keep each other from local and intercontinental economic problems. CARLAC look into the expansion of different segments to boost profitability and investment opportunities between the two regions.
- Some of the areas that CARLAC targets include education and culture, food security and agriculture, Renewable energy, mining, trade and commerce, infrastructure development, investment, information technology to mention just a few; are the sectors that the council is looking at to provide the Arab countries and Latin America with profitable opportunities.
Much better programs in the area of scientific research and development, support and tactics would contribute to the assembly of collaborations in numerous disciplines like biotechnologies, management and alternative energy sources and natural resources governance. The advancement of Arab-Latin American exchange and communication in the subjects like education, culture and the arts would stimulate a better mutual insight of each region’s people, language, and historical eras. Comprehensively, extensive student exchange programs can lay the foundation and create synergies for the continuing development of many unfathomable heights of understanding and collaboration.
CARLAC’s Participations on Remarkable Events, Conferences, and Festivals, like:
CARLAC and OCP Policy Center Discuss Renewable Energy – COP22

Establish a permanent channel of multisectoral cooperation between two worlds, the Latin American and the Arab. The Director of Programs with the Middle East of the Global Democracy & Development Foundation (Funglode), Mustafa Abu Naba’a, offered an interview with LISTÍN DIARIO to explain how the idea came about and what is really being sought with the materialization of the Center for Arab Relations with Latin America and the Caribbean (Carlac)
The Cartagena Conference
The outcome of both conferences consisted of important statements reaffirming the commitment of Latin American leaders and civil society organizations to engage in the peace process in the Middle East. The Cartagena Conference was sponsored by Funglode, the Pontifical Universidad Javeriana, and the Universidad del Rosario. The Conference examined the bases for the achievement of greater cooperation and partnership in the academic, cultural and educational fields; economic, commercial and business development; and institutional development, governance/governance and promotion of peace.
To this end, the Conference brought together, in an intense dialogue, prominent figures and experts from both regions in the aforementioned areas. Arab and Latin American societies – with their different but relevant experiences – have much to learn from each other, particularly during this period of change in the Arab world and continuous progress in Latin America. The conference sought and managed to focus on building an Arab-Latin American alliance for economic, cultural and institutional development, and to expand dialogue through the establishment of scenarios that promote deliberate efforts called to positively impact global development.

New Arab Foundation: In 1961, U.S. President John Kennedy helped to found the Peace Corps; its mission is to promote world peace. Through the Peace Corps, he looked to energize shared comprehension amongst Americans and individuals of different countries and societies. With the extension of Communism all through the world, Kennedy trusted that sending American citizens to Third-World nations would eradicate any contrary pictures of America, make a constructive reputation, keep the development of socialism. In interest for smart solutions and also military alternatives, Kennedy trusted his endeavors to set up the Peace Corps would be a result in settling pressures between the U.S. also, other outside nations.
The Peace Corps is a service opportunity for persuaded change makers to drench themselves in a community abroad, working next to each other with neighborhood pioneers to handle the most squeezing difficulties of generation.
For the New Arab Foundation, this message of peace motivated the founders to create its own “Peace Corps,” designating it Arab Peace Corps. The motivation behind it is to find creative answers to address the difficulties confronting the Arab World. Its motivation is to break the negative into a positive, self-strengthening commitment to greater benefit. It plans to give chances to gifted and inspired youth to channel their energies and eagerness into extraordinary community benefit. This service won’t just have a constructive outcome in those communities, yet will also furnish the youth themselves with significant abilities and beneficial experience. The New Arab Foundation through its first activity the Arab Peace Corps designs and means to change all that. Challenging youth to contribute to community development and to contribute to the future to surpass the past.
Arab Peace Corps’ Primary Mission
The Arab Peace Corps’ mission is similar to Kennedy’s idea of promoting peace but goes further in stating it wants to break the negativity within susceptible youth that “terrorists” use to fight against what these children are allegedly suffering from. In most cases, they are used in a highly-publicized battle with the end goal to recruit even younger susceptible minds.
Arab Peace Corps’ mission is to work toward developing advancement programs that help the less fortunate Arab communities throughout the world including the U.S., Canada and Europe. It begins by instilling positive self-worth and changing the youth’s outlook, as this will help them feel more connected to their community and country.
The Corps is a voluntary service of two years of Arabians wherever they are in the world. Arab Peace Corps volunteers can be high school graduates or retirees that will help in the construction and re-construction of torn apart or underfunded communities in the following areas:
- Instructional exercise
- Medical care
- Small commercial ventures
- Tutoring programs
Volunteering in the Arab Peace Corps is not just having a beneficial outcome to Arab communities; it’s about providing Arab people a sense of self-worth that can lead to positive life experiences and capabilities.
Significance Of The Arab Peace Corps in Arab World
- Arab nations are volatile when it comes to conformity, an altercation that has not been seen since the colonial days; countries will no longer endure the imbalance from inside and outside forces anymore.
- To change adverse perspective – no jobs, no education – in which the younger generation usually see no prospects and are destined to a life with extremists groups.
- Continued commitment and new ways of thinking can help society with its needs; changing the outlook youth have on life to something that benefits others in a positive way and gives them a sense of pride and accomplishments.
- Aim to inspire Arabs to become a role model by making positive contributions that affect the younger generation’s outlook on life while reconnecting communities and social order; ensuring financial improvement, sound government, education and other opportunities.
The only way the Arab Peace Corps is going to make a difference is if it’s got the help of those committed to making a difference. The organization is set to assemble the youth – college graduates and skilled professionals alike – to volunteer their services for two years, using their personal situations and experience to serve in the communities of poorer Arab nations.
How Will Arab Peace Corps Volunteers Help Communities
Arab Peace Corps volunteers will be divided into groups based on their skillset and given a specific set of tasks to help within the communities. Volunteers will prepare for a month before they are sent out into various communities for the next 22 months. What services will they provide?
- They will offer assistance in educational and job opportunities.
- They will help foster young minds to boost their self-esteem and weaken radical groups’ exposure on the susceptible youth.
- Volunteers will help unite communities and boost family relations.
The ultimate goal is to bring groups of people together, working together for a better life, throughout the Middle East and North Africa regions. Volunteer groups will have highly-knowledgeable and skilled professionals to assist them while on “their mission,” offering them coaching and tutoring while also improving their skills.
Volunteers are provided food and lodging and are given a living stipend. Graduate study scholarships are given to any volunteer who finishes their two years of volunteering with the Arab Peace Corps. The Foundation spearheading the Peace Corps works with various entities to provide occupational assistance to people who complete their two-year service.
Imagine if you will the array of professional volunteers from the Arab World – North Africa to Morocco to the Middle East – and from Europe, Australia, and North America. Every one of them is dedicated professionals – healthcare workers, teachers, environmentalists, etc. – a representation of the best things the Arab World has to offer with its values, culture, traditions, and religion.
Now, imagine them throughout the Arab World, helping communities to have access to education, healthcare, jobs, etc. The volunteers focus on the young men and women’s hopes and dreams along with disappointments to guide and motivate them to look forward to something positive in their life – how they can build up their communities rather than destroy them such as can happen when they allow radicalism to rule their lives.
The idea is to turn these young men and women into cultural ambassadors for their community. They come back to assist their communities with their newfound knowledge and understanding of the important issues that have a positive and negative effect on the Arab World. They come back with the mind to be a positive influence in their group, society, and community. Their hard work and dedication are then reciprocated by the communities they have come back to, providing them with grants and employment opportunities. It takes time, the communities are then built up by the work the youth volunteers have put in, creating communities that have better services, better security, more jobs, positive youth and a sense of pride and security.
This is what the New Arab Foundation has brought forth with its Arab Peace Corps – the vision that once embattled communities can become productive societies with peace, love, and understanding – giving the youth reasons to go out and make a positive mark on the world. This is why the Arab Peace Corps is so important, and the Foundation is looking for help in changing how the Arab world is today into something far better.
