Imagine What Our Ayandeh Could Be

Ten years ago, IAAB started a leadership camp... but what we got was so much more. 

Camp Ayandeh, our flagship program, is the most empowering, life-changing program available to Iranian-American youth today. The Ayandeh movement has impacted our community and its future leaders. IAAB gave Camp Ayandeh to the community, and now we ask the community to give to Our Ayandeh. We need your support to continue to educate, inspire and empower our youth. 

If every person impacted by IAAB donated $200, imagine what Our Ayandeh could be. Please make a 100% tax-deductible contribution today. 

Through the support of numerous volunteers, IAAB has accomplished so much with so little.

When you donate where does your money go?

IAAB functions almost entirely on a volunteer basis, so we rely on all kinds of support from our community, be it financial or otherwise. IAAB is among one of the only organizations where you can be sure your donations are going straight to impacting youth directly: there is only one full-time paid member of IAAB staff and the rest of our funding goes towards financing programs like Camp Ayandeh and the Student Summit. 

When you pay for Camp Ayandeh where does your money go?

80% of camp tuition goes towards room and board as well as the meals the hosting college campus provides for campers and counselors throughout the program. The remainder of the cost includes transportation to and from the airport, supplies, insurance and scholarships for families who otherwise would not be able to participate. Camp tuition, while it provides an invaluable experience for Ayandeh campers, does not extend into creating more programs or benefits beyond the end of the camp session.

With your generous support and that of other community members, IAAB is able to provide incredible programming to our youth, students, parents, Persian school educators, and other members of our community. 

Become a part of the IAAB movement. With your support, imagine what Our Ayandeh could be.

By reaching out to Iranian-American youth and providing them with a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment to develop their leadership skills, IAAB is ensuring the long term vitality of our community and civil society in America.

It's free of baggage, does not look in the rear view mirror, and instead is trailblazing its way to a more tolerant, cooperative and transparent future where the best of Iranian values and ideals are lived every day.
