Junior Corps

If you are between the ages of 21-31 and seeking a university internship or volunteer opportunity, let AVC secure the opportunity of a lifetime for you, in Armenia, any time of the year. 

The Junior Corps program welcomes individuals of all ethnicities* between the ages of 21 and 31 who are in search of volunteer or internship opportunities. Volunteers commit to a minimum stay of one month in Armenia and may stay for a maximum of one year, serving 30 hours weekly with one or more of our 1,400+ partner organizations of their choice.  International students studying in Armenia are eligible for a reduced weekly commitment of 20 hours per week, provided they are pursuing full-time studies in Armenia. AVC provides individually customized placements all year long by matching volunteer skills and interests to the needs of our partners, running in a wide variety of sectors such as: business, education, environmental sciences, finance, health, human rights, journalism, PR, government-supported bodies, NGOs, and arts and culture. AVC also provides support services to provide a seamless integration, including airport pickup, host-family living arrangements, Armenian language classes, and much more. In addition, AVC’s weekly gatherings, forums and weekly excursions all across the country enable volunteers to uniquely discover the sights, sounds, and flavors of Armenia.

N.B.: If you are between the ages of 21 to 31 and are at least 25% ethnically Armenian, contact Birthright Armenia directly; they will advise you on how to proceed. However, if you were born in Armenia and left after the age of 12, you are still eligible to apply through AVC.
