Our Youth Club is a great place to meet up with your friends and share common interests. We want to involve young people to steer our talks and activities and as such invite our youth to provide us with input into our activity planning.

The youth club is held two Fridays a month at the Hayashen Centre from 5:00pm to 8:30pm every second Friday.  The youth club is open to all up to the age of 10 to 18 years old.

We also want to hear from you, through a quick survey that takes less than 2 minutes to complete. We want to hear both the views of young Armenians and their parents:
