GlobalJax Initiative

GlobalJax is an organization that works to break barriers and connect people from around the world with people in Jacksonville. Since 1990, they have assisted in bringing leaders, talented students and business owners from around the globe to meet their counterparts in Jacksonville. 

From July 10-24, a group of 11 teenagers, two mentors, and two chaperones from Iraq will visit Jacksonville.

GlobalJax reached out to the Ramallah Club for assistance in setting up visits to Arab-speaking businesses for tours, and are looking for host families for 1-2 teens for one week. The teens are top students in their class and are both Christian and Muslim.
This is a great opportunity to help these young people learn about Arab-operated successes in Jacksonville.

For more information contact Joy Batteh-Freiha at: jbfreiha@comcast.net
