Every summer since 2003, AGBU’s Discover Armenia Program has brought together diasporan youth ages 15-18 from around the world for an unforgettable adventure in their ancestral homeland.
Discover Armenia participants engage in various volunteer projects that contribute to local development, for which they receive community service credit at their schools. Volunteer assignments have included building houses for disadvantaged families, visiting local orphanages, and serving hot meals at AGBU’s Senior Dining Centers. At the same time, students have the opportunity to tour the country’s historic sites and enjoy its natural wonders, as well as spend a weekend in Karabakh.
At the end of this three-week experience, participants return home with both friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
