AYF Youth Corps is an enriching experience for members of the Diaspora to make
tangible connections in the Homeland. Shant Sassounian, a 2022 Youth Corps
participant, described his experience: “The AYF Youth Corps program is an opportunity
to meet the people, and especially kids, in the Homeland. The campers look forward to
this program every year, and it will put the biggest smile on your face and warm your
heart like nothing else. It’s hard saying goodbye to the kids at the end of camp, but
knowing the amazing impact you made on the youth of the Homeland is the most
fulfilling feeling I’ve ever had.”
