AGBU YOUNG PROFESSIONALS’ WORLDWIDE GROUPS SUPPORT THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF ARMENIA

Since 2001, the AGBU Young Professionals (YP) have lent their financial support to the American University of Armenia giving nearly $29,000 in total to subsidize the university’s annual membership fee to the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Digital Library, as well as for student scholarships. As AUA prepares its graduate students to play a constructive role in the social and economic development of Armenia, the AGBU Young Professionals believe that education is one of the best ways to give back to Armenia by helping AUA students of today help the Armenia of tomorrow. The AGBU YP Groups and YP Partner organizations who have donated over the years include: YP Boston, YP Greater New York, YP Los Angeles, YP Montreal, YP Northern California, and HAIK from Frankfurt, Germany. Continuing its annual tradition a decade later, YP Groups from North America to Europe most recently teamed up to donate $2,200 to the ACM Digital Library which advances education in computing and information technologies.
