From college roots, to a national movement.

In 2001, a group of college students in Washington DC founded NAAP to provide graduating Arab students with a means to continue their community activism and involvement after college.

These recent grads sought to channel their energies into community advancement, while also developing their skills and networks in the professional arena.

NAAP's 1st National Conference took place in 2003


More than a decade later, NAAP is one of the fastest growing Arab-American organizations with numerous chapters and local networks developing across the U.S.
