“Such a representative, pan-Armenian youth conference was long-awaited. It’s difficult to overvalue the role of our youth in Armenia’s future development. That is precisely why the Armenian Assembly of America has become a nucleus of youth activity in Armenia, unifying several of the most constructive and forward looking youth groups in our young republic,” stated Assembly Country Director Armina Darbinian.
