PAAIA aims to empower the next generation of Iranian Americans by encouraging them to participate in politics and civil service. By providing various internship opportunities and successful Iranian American mentors, PAAIA hopes to give rise to an unprecedented generation of Iranian American leaders. Our various programs seek to create a more civically engaged community by providing a rewarding experience that helps participants learn about the importance of being active in the American civic process. PAAIA also supports current leaders in the Iranian American community through its IA-100 group. Learn more about our programs below.
