The Persian Cultural Club (also known as “PCC”) is a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)3 organization incorporated in the State of California on October 28, 2002.
The mission of the Persian Cultural Club is to promote Iranian culture, language, literature and arts in the northern California through providing classes and activities for children and adults. Our staff is highly dedicated to this mission and since our inception has worked enthusiastically toward making this vision a reality. We offer tuition-reduced or tuition-free classes to families who cannot afford to pay the full tuition.
Throughout the year, we offer Farsi (Persian) lessons for children and adults, Amadegi classes for preschoolers, and a variety of other classes, including Daf, Tonbak, Drawing, Arts, Crafts, English, Guitar, Math, Piano, Theater and Violin. Every summer, we hold a Day Camp for children.
We also sponsor annual events such as a Music Recital and Norouz and Shabe-e Yalda celebrations.
Our organization is non-denominational and non-political, serving people of Iranian descent and non-Iranian descent who represent a wide variety of religious affiliations and political leanings and who all share an interest in Persian language and culture.
The Dehkhoda Institute of Persian Language is a for-profit organization founded in 1989.
The objective of the Dehkhoda Insititute is to teach the Persian language to children and adults and to promote the understanding and preservation of Persian culture and traditions among Iranian-Americans in the northern California Iranian community.
We also offer high school level foreign language credit. Accredited by San Jose unified school districts and Fremont Union high school district.
