IAAB is strongly committed to building a diverse team that represents a range of opinions, experiences and perspectives. As such, individuals of all backgrounds, gender, race, culture, sexuality, and class are encouraged to apply.
Counselors will be selected on a competitive basis. As such, submission of an application does not guarantee participation. All applicants are strongly advised to respond to all questions with honest, thoughtful and thorough answers.
Applicants who are selected to serve as counselors must confirm within one week of notification of acceptance into Camp Ayandeh. Upon receiving a verbal or written commitment from selected participants, IAAB will send additional information and materials as to the specific details of Camp Ayandeh.
