Can’t Wait to Start!

Youth Corps participants in Armenia

BY VANA ANDONIAN

I’ve been to Armenia once before, but as a tourist. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to experience my homeland in such a unique and memorable way. In addition to being able to live in my homeland for 6 weeks, I get to meet other volunteers like myself and create long-lasting friendships. So far, everything is surreal to me to the point that I feel like I never left America. But I know that once we start camp and I get to spend time with the kids, I won’t want to leave my homeland. My friends who have done Youth Corps in past years told me before I left that this is a life changing experience, and I’m ready to take the next step with my fellow volunteers in making sure that it is one.

I can’t wait to see what the next 6 weeks have in store for us!

    You are very lucky. It is an incredibly beautiful land, everything is beautiful, the people, the food, the wines, the water, the air, it is like heaven on earth. We have to appreciate the hidden treasure we have, and we have to preserve it for our future generations.
