2022 ACYOA 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. Participants return home enriched and inspired by their experience and eager to strengthen their bond with the homeland and their Church. We are pleased to announce that the 2022 ACYOA Armenia Service Program has been scheduled for July 5 - July 25.
Our Primate has appointed Fr. Hratch Sargsyan of St. Gregory of Narek Church in Richmond Heights, OH to lead this year’s trip to help guide our young people on their journey to their homeland. This summer, we are partnering with the Fuller Center of Housing, Camp Aragats, Fund for Armenian Relief and Ayo! for a number of service opportunities for our participants. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore religious and cultural sites throughout Armenia.
The total anticipated cost of the ACYOA Armenian Service Program trip is approximately $4100.00, however due to the generosity of the Dadourian Foundation grant, ACYOA subsidies, and a grassroots effort to secure donations we are pleased to offer this travel experience to our homeland at the reduced rate of $2600.00. The price includes round trip airfare from JFK Airport to Yerevan, ground transportation and transfers in Armenia, all tours with a bilingual tour guide, lodging, and two meals a day.
We ask that you support ASP by:
Promoting the program with your local youth by posting information on your parish website, e-newsletters, social media channels and church bulletins.
Identify one or more young adult in your parish community to recruit and encourage to attend.
Provide financial assistance as a parish community, when possible.
