The Learn and serve program is among the many avenues one can use to study and visit Tunisia. Students in the program get to learn Arabic while visiting the country and other major cities in North Africa. The program provides a great way to make friends from other parts of the world. In addition to study, participants also get to immerse themselves in volunteer activities.

Students enlisted are often accommodated by a local family providing an even richer cultural experience. However, students are free to explore alternative accommodation if they feel they need to.
