The innovative programme (Tufts 4+1) offered by Tisch College at Tufts University (www.tufts) affords its students the opportunity to volunteer for full-time community service before beginning their academic studies at the university. The programme is designed for students to acquire experience in the real world, explore new personal and academic skills, and learn about themselves and the world through volunteering.

Volunteers become an example to follow at the same time as being ambassadors of their culture and vision of the world.

The programme is possible thanks to the cooperation of AFAIJ ( and United Planet (
