Junior Corps

Are you a young person (21-31) looking for a university internship or something less formal that will still contribute to national development and personal growth? With AVC, you can find both in Armenia, any time of year. 

The Junior Corps program welcomes individuals outside the Armenian Diaspora between the ages of 21 and 31 (inclusive) who are in search of volunteering or internship opportunities. Volunteers commit to a minimum stay of one month in Armenia and may stay for a maximum of one year, serving in a volunteering placement of their own choosing, 30+ hours weekly. International students studying in Armenia may be eligible for a reduced weekly commitment of 20 hours per week as long as they are pursuing full-time studies in-country. Placements are available year-round at organizations in a wide variety of sectors, including business, education, environmental sciences, arts and culture, finance, health, government-supported bodies, and non-governmental agencies. In addition to placements, AVC provides all manner of logistical support, with airport pickup, host-family living arrangements, Armenian language classes, and more. Following a successful application process, AVC matches volunteers’ skills and interests to the needs of our partner companies, agencies, and institutions. From a young age, you could forge a lifelong friendship with an entire nation!

N.B.: If you are aged 21 to 31 and of Armenian heritage (at least 25% Armenian), please contact Birthright Armenia directly; they will advise you on how to proceed. However, if you were born in Armenia but left after age 12, you may be eligible to volunteer through AVC.
