At Seventy-First High School, the "Passport to Global Cultures" Program, led by Carmen Villalobos, seeks to expose students to various cultures and develop knowledge, understanding, and appreciation for different communities worldwide. The "Passports to Global Cultures" program focuses on and promotes the Arabic language and culture. This project will benefit the students and community near Fort Bragg, as many join the military, and familiarization with the Arabic language and cultures of the Middle East will benefit them in their careers in national security. To promote long-term interest in the community, the project will advance exposure to the Arabic language and culture by organizing events such as dances and festivals, promoting Arabic clubs in the school district, and engaging in cultural activities such as games and cooking.
