The outreach aims at introducing the new program and the Arabic Language. Most people in the valley did not know about the importance of learning Arabic. I think I was the first one to go to Alamo city in Texas. So I arranged this outreach and designed flyers to be distributed every where declaring time and place of the outreach which took place in the school cafeteria right after the campus at 5.00 pm - 6.00 pm My mentor teacher started the outreach introducing me and my program, then I showed the presentation which stresses the importance of learning the culture along with the language. I had the time to answer audience's questions regarding the program. Many wanted to join but did not have the time so I announced that I will have an Arabic Club for every one. We had then time for an interview with the district reporter. Finally we had a little feast that included some Egyptian food.
