AVC volunteers participate in Spring training

A group of 7 spring volunteers participated in an AVC training session on May 20th at the site of the future Bed & Breakfast and Cultural Center being set up by 2005 AVC alum Seta Iskandarian. The Center is located on the cliffs of Garni across from the 1st century temple of Garni, affording a beautiful view of the river and gorge below.

The day long training session covered topics such as cross-cultural experience, community development, country development, and leadership & utilization of resources as diasporan volunteers. The training session gave the volunteers, some new arrivals and some seasoned volunteers, an opportunity to discuss their experiences while acquiring new skills and being introduced to different perspectives regarding their unique position as diasporan Armenian volunteers in Armenia.
