Established in 2005 in Denver Colorado, Colorado Children's Noruz Foundation is a non-religious, non-political, and not-for-profit foundation with a mission to celebrate and promote Iranian art and culture, specifically Noruz for the benefit of the Iranian-American children, youth and adult in Colorado at large.
Every year CCNF has organized an annual children's Noruz program. Iranian-American children and youth of all ages have had the opportunity to participate in this annual ritual, which has given them exposure to Persian traditions and culture. CCNF believes that Iranian-American children deserve to be proud of who they are. Their ability to connect with their Persian cultural heritage will enrich their educational experience and create a diverse intellectual and social environment. This promotes personal growth and a healthy society. By exposing children to the Persian culture, CCNF hopes to instill in them confidence, critical thinking skills, and ability to communicate effectively with their peers.
Our vision is to educate our community at large. We feel that Iranian art and culture can contribute positively and can be adopted not only by Iranian-Americans but also by whomever that is interested in learning about Iranian art and culture. We at CCNF are proud of inclusive and multi-cultural team and participants.
