Office of AEGEE-Yerevan opens in Yerevan

PanARMENIAN.Net - On November 27, the office of AEGEE-Yerevan youth public organization was officially opened in Yerevan.

Coordinator of the European Commission's Tempus program in Armenia Lana Karlova expressed hope that AEGEE-Yerevan will become an authoritative organization in Armenia in five years.

Due to the organization, the Armenian youth will be able to obtain information on European educational programs, Karlova said.

AEGEE (French abbreviation of the European Forum of Students) is one of the largest organizations of Europe, which currently has around 15,000 members in various countries.

During the 50th assembly of AEGEE in October 2010, an agreement was signed between AEGEE-Europe and AEGEE-Yerevan, under which the organization has obtained the right to officially operate in Yerevan. Currently, AEGEE-Yerevan has 30 members. Besides, numerous applications on membership have been received. Active young people below 35 can become members of the organization.
