Rediscover Iran: Contact beteween Iranian-American
and Iranian youth
To share my experiences of Iran with others, I have begun setting up
a non-profit organization called Rediscover Iran (RI) whose goal is to
create opportunities for Iranian-American youth to have direct contact
with the Iranian people and their culture. This summer RI will be offering
a six-week Mini-Semester Abroad in Iran where participants will engage
in cultural and educational activities in addition to receiving language
instruction. Some of the activities include:
- archeological digs
- living with nomads or villagers
- learning to play traditional Iranian musical instruments
- visiting industrial sites
- helping charity organizations
- travel to Isfahan and Shiraz
In the future, it is my desire to offer opportunities for volunteer
work in Iran in addition to internships, recreational tours, student exchanges,
and other programs that will increase opportunities for interaction.
If you would like more information about any of the above-described
programs or would like to help support and promote this organization, please
contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also visit our website at //www.rediscover-iran.org
when it gets up in about two weeks.
Thank you so much for your time. I look forward to hearing your comments,
questions, and suggestions.
p.s. if you know of other Iranian-Americans that might be interested
in hearing about this program, please forward this email on to them. Thanks!
