BERKELEY — Applications are now available for The Paros Foundation’s SERVICE Armenia 2014 Program. The Program will run from June 23 to July 24, 2014 and enables young people to travel and tour Armenia and Artsakh, while engaging in meaningful service projects benefiting Armenia and her people.
“I am looking forward to another successful Program this summer.” Said Peter Abajian, Executive Director of The Paros Foundation. “Our group last summer worked on the elementary school wing at the Hatsik village school and also helped distribute 50,000 pairs of shoes in rural villages in Armenia. This summer, our group will work on similar meaningful service projects.”
Throughout the Program, participants will tour historic, religious and cultural sites throughout Armenia and Artsakh with experienced, English speaking staff and guides. Safe and well located accommodations and transportation combined with interesting cultural and educational activities will ensure all will have a engaging and memorable experience. The program is open to both Armenian and American young people wishing to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity. Knowledge of the Armenian language is not required. Join us and create a lifetime of great memories and friends. The deadline to submit the completed application is April 1, 2014.
“This was my first trip to Armenia and I had an amazing time. I would definitely recommend SERVICE-Armenia for anyone who wants to see Armenia and get involved.” Said Narine Panosian, SERVICE Armenia 2013 Participant.
