    • Hello Vahe,

      Thank you for your message. There are a number of ways you can get involved. Depending on your age and experience, the Executive Internship Program is one of the best ways to get an understanding of the work that is done at the ANCA. If that is not at all an option, getting involved at the local level with your nearest chapter is something you might also consider.

      If you have any further questions, please contact Shant at shant@anca.org.

      Thank you.

      Best,

      ANCA-WR Team

  3. Hello,
    My name is Nune Kirakosyan. I am from Armenia. I have graduated from the Yerevan State Linguistic University after V. Brusov. I got my Bachelor degree in linguistics (English and Italian languages) and Masters degree in the sphere of International Relations. I am deeply interested in the proposed Internship Program and will be extremely happy if you give me a chance to take part in it. I am particularly curious to get detailed information and to discover closely the overall life of Armenian diaspora in America.
    Unfortunately, I turned 24 years old on July 14 of this year. If it is possible can you make an exception and give me an opportunity to participate in this program. I do not want to miss such a fantastic chance.
    Thank you
