As a member of the ICEC family, you can help by taking an active role in the Community and School Association (CSA). The CSA, composed of current and former parent volunteers, works with the administration to organize and assist with the registration, collect and analyze registration data, organize cultural celebrations and ICEC booth at local cultural festivals. In addition, parent volunteers help with the Center’s library, security, reproduction of teaching materials, refreshments, and student store.

Iran Arbabi Scholarship In Name of Abe Pishevar:

The ICEC invites donations made in honor of Abraham Pishevar, a former student who was taken from us too soon. Donations made in Abraham’s honor will help fund the Iran Arbabi Scholarship Program.
The award letter to the recipient would indicate that “Funding of the Iran Arbabi Scholarships is made, in part, by donations made to ICEC in honor of Abraham Pishevar”.
