About Us

Meet the Middle East is dedicated to fostering relationships between the United States and the Middle East. We accomplish this mission through a variety of means, all of which are designed to bring people together to learn from and connect with one another.

Among our offerings are immersion trips to the Middle East, educational classes for youth to adult learners, academic presentations, and cultural offerings. Meet the Middle East also encourages business interactions, congregates authentic media and voices from the region, and strives to educate and unite diverse populations.

MTME and many others believe a new era is emerging in the Middle East, and with it, a new chance for peace and interaction between the people of the Middle East and the West. In an age of high technology that includes social media, a new kind of citizen has also emerged in the region, one that is informed, connected, and ready for change.

The Middle East is an astoundingly rich and beautiful region of the world filled with a tapestry of diverse peoples, resources and opportunities. The region also has considerable challenges and ignited passions that sometimes frighten or confuse many in the West.There is a need and demand for education and greatly increased interaction with the Middle East, and it is the goal of MTME to help Americans prepare for and participate in this new era in positive and constructive ways.
