It is only fitting that the IAABlog (www.iranianalliances.org/blog) be launched with the start of IAAB's Summer Leadership Institute. As training comes to a close, IAAB's staff anxiously await the arrival of the vibrant and unique Iranian American teenagers that will be arriving in Los Angeles today. Each day will be chronicled with posts, photos, and videos. To get a taste of staff and counselor preparation, visit the blog. We hope to document the program so that you, our supporters and community members, can join us even if only virtually and be a part of the Ayandeh experience.
Keep up with Ayandeh and Javan on IAAB Blog!
