  • Meet, network, share resources and ideas.
  • Assist schools that would like to start new programs.
  • Reach out to communities and educate them about the Arabic language and culture.
  • And advocate for Arabic language and culture programs in the schools.

SCALTCis led by an  Executive Committee that  represents a wide variety of institutions and regions at public and private elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities as well as non-profit and public service organizations.
