Due to our growth in the past seven years in creating cutting-edge educational programming for Iranian American youth, IAAB is pleased to announce the creation of the IAAB Summer Leadership Institute!
In response to popular demand from parents across the country, we have turned Camp Javan, our middle school leadership camp, into an optional overnight night that will occur in conjunction with Camp Ayandeh. In this way, 6th-8th grade Iranian American students from across the country will have the chance to learn from their high school and college aged peers and develop mentor/mentee relationships from a young age that will serve them for years to come.
In the coming years, IAAB's Summer Leadership Institute will expand to include programming for university student leaders as well. As of now, the IAAB Summer Leadership Institute includes intensive training for university and graduate student leaders, followed by Camp Ayandeh and Camp Javan. The Institute will start from June 30th this summer and run until July 11th in Los Angeles, CA.
The creation of the IAAB Summer Leadership Institute also means that we have room for more participants. It's not too late to apply to be a part of this amazing experience! Camp Ayandeh will take place from July 3-July 11 at Whittier College and Camp Javan will take place from July 7-July 11th at Whittier College as well.
