ABOUT THE ACYOA
(ARMENIAN CHURCH YOUTH ORGANIZATION OF AMERICA)

Getting ready for ACYOA Sports weekend in PA!

The ACYOA is a Christ-centered organization whose goal is to create among young adults a greater sense of spiritual culture and tradition, and to instill within its members a true spirit of civic mindedness.  The ACYOA is charged with preparing and equipping young adults to participate in leadership capacities.

What a great group starting the 2016-17 year! With parent co-advisors Diana Bourghol & Talar Sarafian

The Organization must develop programs through which members participate, receive information, feel a sense of belonging, experience meaningful relationships, and be exposed to the Armenian Church and her rich, cultural heritage. These programs must be diverse and they must lead young Armenian adults in the direction of future participation and leadership within parishes and Church at large.  For further information, please visit the Official Website of the Armenian Church Youth Organization of America.
