Dear Fellow Iranian-Americans,

We are pleased to announce our growth, our commitment and vision for over the past 37 years and expect similar growth in the future.  Throughout the years, we have managed to grow, help those in need locally, nationally and internationally, and kept our unique culture alive. The goal of this society, in addition to the promotion of the Persian language, culture and the long heritage of Iran, is protecting the welfare of Iranian-Americans and their families and to encourage them to get involved in social, cultural, and community activities.  We ask for your participation and contributions in order to guaranty our future success.  IAS is most proud of its two (2) Ferdowsi Farsi schools, located in Long Island and Westchester. Furthermore, IAS strives to create opportunities for introducing our rich culture to other ethnic and racial groups.


We always welcome your comments and ideas. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions or concerns.
