About Pars Generation+:
The goal of Pars Generation+ is simple but multi-faceted. Broadly, we want to be the glue that brings our community together both as individuals and as organizations. On the ground, we want to provide the younger generation of Iranians, both immigrant and American-born, with career mentors, peer mentors, and career opportunities. We also want to provide this younger generation opportunities to connect with their Iranian culture and heritage. In short, our mission is to “Act as a catalyst for social, cultural and economic integration of Iranians, and Persian speaking communities, to achieve their highest potential and to stay connected to their shared Iranian culture.”

“Empowering The Next Generation Through Community, Career & Connection”
