Imagine yourself volunteering in an orphanage or after-school center in Yerevan...Helping to build a home for an earthquake victim who is still living in a shipping container...Sharing your professional knowledge with someone working in the same field in Armenia...Volunteering a week or two, or longer, of your time to participate in one of the programs doing service projects in Armenia can be a life-changing experience! AGBU/Chicago has assembled a number of the most prominent programs, including some based in Chicago or with strong ties here, so you can learn more about how their efforts are helping Armenia, match one with your interests or needs, and develop an interest in joining one of them in the future. Each program has a fascinating story to tell about the particular focus of its efforts, its impact in the country and on its program participants. Program representatives and/or previous participants will be on hand to give brief presentations on their program's features and benefits, and to share their experiences. Each will have a display table with informational materials. If you have a friend or relative who might be interested in going to Armenia, please pass the word along! Free admission.
