In an increasingly competitive world, the younger generation of Iranian Americans, more than ever, needs opportunities and programs to live the American dream and prosper in their educational and professional careers. PAAIA is committed to ensuring that our younger generation receives the advice, tools, and support that an integrated community can provide its members to be a successful and vibrant community. To that end, we are proud to introduce you to PAAIA NexGen and invite you to watch the video below.
PAAIA NexGen is a national organization aimed at creating a network of highly talented young Iranian American professionals and students, both to support their career development as well as to create a vehicle for them to serve our communities. NexGen is structured under the umbrella of the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) and shares its parent organization's aspiration of community building, image building, and influence building.
NexGen's Activities Include:
The continued support of the community is vital to sustaining and expanding PAAIA NexGen Programs for our youth. For example, your support will go towards establishing NexGen Capitol Hill Internship Program (CHIP) with the goal of placing college students or recent graduates in congressional offices and eventually other positions in order to increase civic participation among young Iranian Americans.
PAAIA remains committed to empowering the Iranian Americans living in the United States and continues to be dedicated to uniting the community, giving it voice, and building a brighter future for our children.
