Arab Youth Venture Foundation Innovative Partnership Program

USRA, working with the Ames Office of Education and Public Outreach, recently welcomed three enthusiastic EAP associates, nationals from UAE, participating in a global partnership-building endeavor through the Arab Youth Venture Foundation (AYVF). This high-profile program has received praise from Secretary Clinton, earning mention in multiple recent international speeches. The program is currently seeking projects in support of the Space Act Agreement between NASA and AYVF with the objective of forming a strategic alliance to foster education and outreach opportunities in the Middle East.
