Armenia Service Program

The Armenia Service Program or ASP has a long history of providing young adults with a unique opportunity to affirm their faith, discover their homeland and serve its people in a meaningful way.

Registration Open For 2024 Armenia Service Program!

The Armenia Service Program (ASP) has a long history of providing young adults with a unique opportunity to affirm their faith, discover and connect with their homeland, and serve its people in a meaningful way. Participants return home enriched and inspired by their experience and eager to strengthen their bond with the homeland and their Church.

 

The 2024 Armenia Service Program will be held from July 8 to July 29. Fr. Hakob Gevorgyan of Holy Trinity Armenian Church in Cheltenham, PA will lead the group through our homeland for an exciting opportunity to explore and serve. Participants will visit historical and cultural sites, reflect and pray in ancient monasteries, work on a Fuller Center house build, and spend time at a FAR children’s summer camp. 

We are pleased to offer this wonderful experience at the reduced special rate of $1,700.00 for the first 20 participants to register, thanks to the generosity of the Dadourian Foundation, ACYOA subsidies, and fundraising efforts. The full rate of the program is $2,850.00.

The program rate includes all ground transportation and transfers in Armenia, lodging, all sightseeing tours with a bilingual (Armenian and English) tour guide, most meals over the twenty day itinerary, and more.

The program rate does not include roundtrip airfare. Participants will purchase their own flights separately and work with Diocesan staff to
coordinate their arrival and departure times with other participants.

Participants are encouraged to register below by April 25. 

Additional information and a full drafted itinerary of the 2024 Armenia Service Program can be found below as well.

We ask that you support ASP by:

  1. Promoting the program with your local youth by posting information on your parish website, e-newsletters, social media channels and church bulletins. 

  2. Identify one or more young adult in your parish community to recruit and encourage to attend, and to sponsor if possible.

  3. Provide financial assistance as a parish community to the program, when possible.
