Support, inspire and engage young people from Armenia and all over the world to develop their social leadership skills, to take their civic responsibility and to act as change-makers.


In 2007 a group of students majoring in Political Science had idea to establish an organization. In 2009 after years of strategy development finally APY was officially registered with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia. From 2009 organisation's ambitions were growing along with the funding, capacity, knowledge, human recourses and areas of activities. Through the engagement in youth work, the founders, staff members and volunteers of the organization grew to highly competent young professionals: activists, leaders, youth workers, trainers, facilitators who are leading APY today. During the last years APY organized hundreds of activities, campaigns, events and projects in Armenia and neighbouring countries involving children, teenagers, youngsters, youth workers, volunteers, adults and their communities.
