Summer Leadership Institute
IAAB's Summer Leadership Institute, through a positive and inclusive environment, allows Iranian American student leaders to develop leadership skills, foster strong friendships, and gain a deeper understanding of culture and identity as the youth of the Iranian diaspora community. The IAAB Summer Leadership Institute accomplishes this mission through Ayandeh, Javan and the University Fellows and their community building activities, cultural, historical and artistic workshops, and critical discussions. Furthermore, the curricula of all the programs in the Summer Leadership Institute assists participants in responding to the issues they see affecting young people within the Iranian American community.
Iranian American student leaders leave the institute with a stronger sense of self and responsibility for others, lifelong friendships, and the necessary skills to lead both within and outside of the Iranian diaspora community. The Iranian diaspora community is diverse and vibrant, a characteristic that the IAAB Summer Leadership Institute represents, embraces, and celebrates.
As a non-political and non-religious camp, the IAAB Summer Leadership Institute is open to all races and all creeds.
