Kef Time

Friday night, we gathered to complete the Part II of the AVC training session. The evening began with AVC board of trustee’s member, Tom Samuelian, who gave a lecture on economic development in Armenia. He presented us with some very insightful facts on the present economy of Armenia, as well as proposing ideal ways that could boost the economy in the near future. The second part of the session, was lead by AVC director Anoush Tatevossian, who guided us through a workshop dealing with leadership, and our role as volunteers in Armenia. The group discussed how our work is useful to the development of Armenia, as well as some of the important resources we have to offer while volunteering.

What better way to finish off our great session, but to have a true Armenian kef! The volunteers, along with their coworkers, host families or friends, came together at Beirut Restaurant for an evening of mingling and dancing! Throughout the night, volunteers got to meet and socialize with local Armenian young people, make new friends, and dance the night away to our favorite Armenian music. Seeing how this event had such a good turnout, and everyone greatly enjoyed themselves, AVC is definitely going to make this a regular event!
