Spring Events for European Young Professionals

  • Image

From May 26 to 29, 2007 with the support of the European Commission, AGBU is hosting two upcoming events in Valence, France which will provide opportunities for young Armenian professionals to discover new facets of the European Armenian community:

  • The Discovery & Networking Weekend - an opportunity to make friends, learn about Young Professional (YP) activities, and participate in an exhilarating combination of cultural, outdoor, and entertainment experiences, is open to all; and
  • The second annual Exchange & Development Seminar, which will select 35 participants, aims to empower young Armenian professionals to acquire the skills and the networks to develop successful projects.

Last year's inaugural seminar in Brussels (www.ugab.info/ypforum) spawned new friendships, a lasting network, and several new projects, including new AGBU YP Groups, an international youth exchange with Armenia, and a new Armenian language school in Barcelona. The program for this year will again emphasize project exchange and training, include workshops for project development, and is expected to initiate more European-level projects.


Registration forms and the full program will be available as of April 5 on www.ugabfrance.org:
