Since 2006, Camp Ayandeh, through a positive and inclusive environment, has developed leadership skills and built a strong network of Iranian American students. The Summer Leadership Institute sponsored by the Iranian Alliances Across Borders (IAAB) will celebrate the 10th annual Camp Ayandeh between July 18th to July 27th at Cabrini College outside of Philadelphia.
Camp Ayandeh began with an inaugural class of 16 students and has grown to include a record number of campers and staff from more than 40 states, five countries and three continents.
IAAB and the Summer Leadership Institute have received generous support over the years from PARSA Community Foundation and The HAND Foundation. Two years ago, IAAB and HAND came together to create the IAAB Lend a HAND Fellowship program, which honors distinguished university students and provides resources to those who propose a unique idea as to how to meet the needs of their local community. Fellows receive in-depth training at IAAB's university programming, a stipend up to $1,000 to cover the cost of a community project, and many more opportunities.
