PAAIA Mentorship: Next Generation of Iranian Americans



April 15, 2011, Washington, D.C. – The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) is pleased to announce the relaunch of the PAAIA Mentorship Program as a benefit to our members and a cornerstone of our mission to help strengthen and empower the Iranian American community across the U.S.

The aim of the PAAIA Mentorship Program is to enable the younger generation of Iranian Americans to advance in their career and professional development by attending one-on-one mentorship meetings with some of the most accomplished Iranian American professionals in the country.

The program, open to PAAIA members for free, provides the younger generation access to Iranian American industry leaders across the nation. The all-volunteer PAAIA Mentors have been recruited from among the organization's members and associates and represent a range of fields that include business, finance, medicine, law, science, journalism, politics, academia, arts & entertainment, and non-government organizations (NGOs).

PAAIA's ability to help the next generation of Iranian Americans thrive in the professional world is at the heart of our work and a guiding principle in our ability to contribute to the innovation of our country and preservation of our heritage.
