A virtual meet-up where youth can connect and build friendships while exploring their roots and heritage, AGBU ARMAT is designed to bring youth ages 8-12 together for monthly virtual meetups to connect with other children around the world in a secure and engaging environment. Guided by educational instructors, participants will follow the traces of our history and culture, discovering new facts and hidden treasures of Armenia. Through engaging activities, they will meet famous and entertaining guest speakers, build social skills and create lasting friendships.
Each month, children virtually embark on a cultural journey that includes the exploration of history, literature, music, language, and more. They also discover in-depth stories of different people and places through interactive media, fun games and discussions.
Virtual meetups are held once a month on Sunday and conducted primarily in English. Several time slots are offered for each theme to allow greater flexibility when registering. Space is limited.
