Young Life Spoken Here

Est. 1998

After the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Armenians longed to fill the spiritual void resulting from 70 years of Communist rule. The country warmed to outside influences, and in 1998, Young Life officially entered Armenia.

The ministry grew to such an extent that by 2013, Young Life purchased a former Communist youth camp that had been abandoned for decades. Located just 90 minutes north of the capital city of Yerevan, the new camp will be a catalyst for sustained growth in Armenia, and hopefully expand ministry in the region.

Today the work in Armenia is growing rapidly, with 15 staff and 233 leaders reaching kids in eight established locations.
