  • Birthright Armenia
    Birthright Armenia
    Birthright Armenia is an organization which allows young Diaspora Armenians between the ages of 21-32 to connect with their ancestral homeland by providing not only travel reimbursement but also a local host family to stay with. Birthright Armenia participants commit to a minimum of 30 hours of volunteering per week and must stay for a minimum of 9 weeks, and a maximum of 1 year. The only exception to this is the Birthright Lite program, which allows working professionals over the age of 25 who have full time jobs to stay for a minimum of 4 weeks instead of 9. Participants are offered Armenian language classes and have the chance to go on excursions every weekend and meet like-minded people from all around the world.
