Established in 1979, the Armenian Youth Federation Western Region's official publication, Haytoug, is a medium for Armenian-American youth to voice their opinions about a wide variety of issues. Beginning as a newsletter, Haytoug evolved into a quarterly magazine with over 100 issues to its name.
As the popularity of the magazine grew over the years so, too, did its quality and scope. Beginning in 2008, Haytoug debuted for the first time in full color and made its vast archives available online. It also expanded its team of volunteers and introduced a subscription system for readers to receive the magazine by mail.
Today, with an international following and a distribution network spanning across the United States, the magazine reaches thousands free of charge. With its high quality of content and design, it is widely recognized as the leading platform for young Armenians to make their voice heard.
