Only a Few Days Away: IAAB's Iranian-American Leadership Camp!
Washington, D.C.--The IAAB staff is excitedly counting down the days to the first Iranian-American Leadership Camp, which will take place the week of June 25-30, 2006 on Thompson Island, Massachusetts. IAAB will be bringing together some of the brightest and most accomplished young members of the Iranian-American community for a week of friendship, learning, and fun!
We are thrilled to be able to provide the next generation of Iranian-American leaders with this unique opportunity. Our campers represent a wide variety of Iranian communities in the United States, and have been selected for their excellence in an array of fields, from mastering the art of the santoor to receiving honors in the sciences.
Campers will be working closely with IAAB's Leadership Camp team of accomplished Counselors and Staff from across the United States, representing numerous prestigious universities and diverse experiences. Our carefully selected team is trained in leadership building, peer mediation, advocacy, and health education and have all demonstrated their enthusiasm for leadership and the Iranian-American community this camp.
Nasim, a Counselor from Portland, Oregan, was particularly mindful of the necessity for community building amongst our youth. “Helping to develop Iranian-American youths into leaders ensures that our community will have the resources it needs to function, grow and prosper,” Nasim said.
The Camp will have a weblog (http://www.iranianalliances.org/blog/2006camp.htm) that campers and staff will update regularly during the week. Stay in tune with us as the week develops.
