Project Review

Young diasporan Armenians have been wondering what they can do to help Armenia now that the barriers have been lifted. The doors have been opened for Armenians from abroad to become a positive physical presence in the homeland. It is now possible for young Armenians to spend a few weeks during the summer assisting where it is needed most, in border towns and war-torn villages in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabagh. Motivated individuals in search of a summer experience to enrich their lives should participate in the AYF Youth Corps program.

Major Responsibilities

Armenia and Nagorno-Karabagh supplying the manpower to villages where residents are attempting to rebuild their lives. Aside from supplying real, positive assistance to our brethren in Armenia, participants will experience the homeland in the most meaningful way. Their hard work will become one more building block in the progress of our nation. AYF Youth Corps participants will spend time sightseeing in both Armenia and Karabagh. AYF Youth Corps participants can look forward to visiting such places as Sardarabad, Etchmiadzin, Karni, Keghart, Kantsasar, Khor Virab, Mt. Ararat, and other sights of historical and cultural significance.

  • Applying through your local Armenian embassy or consulate 
  • Purchasing a visa that is valid for 120 days upon your arrival in Yerevan at the Zvartnots airport. A 120-day visa costs 15,000 AMD.  Make sure your citizenship and travel itinerary allows for a purchase of the visa in Armenia.  Some transit cities may require the Armenian visa to be purchased prior to starting travel.
  • Volunteers that will be in Armenia for more than three months can choose to renew their visa at the passport department in Yerevan
