How to Apply

If you are ready for a life-changing volunteer experience, then it’s time for you to start an application to serve with the Armenian Volunteer Corps.

AVC accepts applications year-round through its online application form. The application allows you to save and return to complete it at any time. To ensure the best possible volunteer experience, we recommend you submit a complete application at least one month prior to your anticipated arrival date in Armenia.

Completing this application will require time. Most volunteers tell us it takes them between one to two hours. We recommend you carefully review and prepare the required documents prior to filling out the application. The application consists of:

  • The online application form, including one essay (two for volunteers who plan on serving for 4+ months)
  • An updated resume
  • Two references (only one required for applicants age 60+)

If you have any questions, we are here to help! Request your very own personal consultation by emailing

What happens after you apply? Once we confirm that you have submitted a fully complete application, we will schedule a short virtual interview with you (typically 30 minutes to one hour in duration) to better understand your background and volunteering interests. Then, the AVC team does a thorough review of your entire application package. Typically, one week after your interview, we will email you a final decision. If you are accepted into the program, we will provide details of what you will need to do to confirm your place as a volunteer. The following is a timeline of how things work, from application to arriving in Armenia as a volunteer!
