FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Armenian Youth Federation Western Region is proud to announce that applications for the 2013 Youth Corps program are now available online! Youth Corps is a summer camp program, aimed at providing the most memorable, productive and exciting means for Armenian youth to establish and strengthen their ties with the homeland.
Since its inception in 1994, Youth Corps has been empowering young Diasporans to take on a more direct role in the nation-building process in Armenia. In the summer of 2012 alone, the Youth Corps day-camps in Gyumri, Stepanakert, Askeran and Broshyan accommodated more than 850 children, with each session being filled at almost double the projected capacity. Bright and interested candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible so that we may continue this growth and reach out to even more children this year!
The Youth Corps program is 6 weeks long, with 5 weeks of volunteer work and 1 week of touring. In addition to volunteering with kids and helping shape their futures, Youth Corps participants will travel throughout Armenia, Artsakh and Javakhk, experiencing historic, exciting, and off-the-beaten-path adventures! This combination of touring and volunteer work is perfect for both first-time visitors, and frequent travelers to Armenia.
The program is now open to ALL motivated individuals between the ages of 18-30 who are enthusiastic about helping their homeland. To get a better sense of the program through photos, videos, and blogs from past years, visit www.ayfyouthcorps.org.
Founded in 1933, the Armenian Youth Federation is the largest and most influential Armenian American youth organization in the United States, working to advance the social, political, educational and cultural awareness of Armenian-American youth.
