Youth Corps is the flagship program of the Armenian Youth Federation, a six-week long summer program aimed at building bridges to the homeland. As a non-profit organization, the AYF counts on donations from community members to ensure its continued success. Program participants and committee members work to rapidly increase the quality and impact of the program.
For summer 2011, the Youth Corps planning committee chose to fundraise by raffling off an iPad. Youth Corps participants hustled to sell twenty-five or more tickets to their friends, and family, and community members alike. They worked relentlessly to guarantee enough funds to attain the necessary amount of art supplies, camp t-shirts, and educational materials for each child in the program. Fortunately,Youth Corps reached its goal and was able to serve over 600 Armenian youth in three two-week camp sessions.
The Youth Corps committee and participants would like to thank everyone who purchased a raffle ticket and supported the program. The lucky winner of the raffle was announced on December 23rd, 2011 at the All-ASA Night Before Eve Youth Corp fundraiser. By purchasing just one $10 raffle, Hermine Tsaturyan won an iPad. Stay tuned to find out what this years raffle prize will be!
