Armenians Come Together
AGBU ACT 2022

 

Call for Volunteers

Go to Armenia and support the displaced families of Artsakh. AGBU organizes several cohorts, with the goal of providing for those in need after the Artsakh war of 2020.

Volunteering and changing lives!

What happens with compassionate young professionals who spend one week working together to serve communities throughout Armenia? A unique service program called AGBU ACT!

Ignited on the heels of the devastating 44-day war in Artsakh, AGBU France launched a series of service trips for those who wanted to roll up their sleeves and give back in person. AGBU ACT has since evolved and works to implement the important humanitarian work of AGBU in Armenia with the strength of our greatest assets, our volunteers.

With no registration or participation fees, all you need to do is sign up and book your flight!

Types of Service Projects

AGBU ACT participants work out of Yerevan and travel to different regions for a diverse range of service projects based on the current needs and humanitarian outreach of AGBU. The program takes place for over one week. Examples of service activities include:

  • Packaging and distributing food and hygiene packages
  • Distributing household items, supplies, clothes, or toys
  • Registering families and individuals for humanitarian aid
  • Engage in sports, cultural, and recreational activities with area children

*The program is designed with agility and volunteers may be asked to assist with other tasks that may arise according to the needs of the time.

2022 Dates

March 13-20

The duration of each session is 1 week. All participants are expected to be in Armenia during this period.

Eligibility

To become a volunteer, you must speak English or French, or Armenian (basic level), be at least 18 years old and COVID vaccinated.

Travel

Volunteers are responsible for paying for airfare and personal expenses during their stay. We recommend participants buy a refundable or exchangeable ticket including insurance, due to COVID-19 and world events. Participants are responsible for taking out insurance for the entire duration of the stay.

Accommodations and Transportation

AGBU will provide dormitory-style rooms in the AGBU Vahe Karapetian Center at a cost of 150€ for the week (including breakfasts). We strongly encourage participants to stay with the AGBU ACT group to encourage team building and cultural exchange. However, participants can stay in their accommodation of choice should they wish. AGBU will also provide transportation from/to Zvartnots Airport, the service project locations, and the AGBU Vahe Karapetian Center throughout the week. Welcome dinner and a farewell cocktail will be organized by AGBU for the participants.

Cohort Size and Related Fees

ACT cohorts are a group of 15 volunteers. The group is kept small for efficiency and general safety.
There are no registration or participation fees.
