- Strengthen understanding of U.S. values and institutions; highlight U.S. culture, including American Studies, English language teaching/learning, and study in the United States; and support diversity, acceptance of minority groups, and other areas of mutual interest.
- Help Moroccan youth explore and discover their potential through innovative science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) programs, as well as entrepreneurship programs.
- Encourage Moroccan youth to participate in civic life through social entrepreneurship, volunteerism, and community engagement.
