Each seminar will engage approximately 30 participants. The seminars will be led by a visiting American speaker and other Moroccan alumni trainers identified by the Public Affairs Office and the grantee. The grantee will develop the program for each seminar and provide logistical support, including transportation or reimbursement to cover travel and accommodation (as needed) for program participants, renting a conference space, furnishing meals and coffee breaks, and any necessary supplies.

The grantee will work with the Public Affairs Office to design the seminar program, identify the Moroccan trainers, and recruit the participants.  Project Management—A day-long seminar in early July will teach approximately 30 Moroccan alumni (both young alumni and more established professionals) the best practices of project management. This seminar will be led by Moroccan alumni who are professional project management trainers or who run local or international NGOs.

There will be no travel expenses provided to participants for this seminar. The grantee will work with the Public Affairs Office to design the seminar program, identify the Moroccan trainers, and recruit the participants.  Digital Engagement—Three one-day seminars in October in Casablanca, Marrakech, and Agadir will teach Moroccan alumni (both young alumni and more established professionals) how to more effectively communicate using digital platforms.
