We envision an Armenia where all children, regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances, have the opportunity to unlock their full potential through an excellent education.
Our mission is to catalyze a nationwide movement of impact-driven leaders expanding educational opportunity to all children in Armenia.
When our students are 25 years old, their education will have enhanced their life circumstances and enabled them to provide for themselves and their families. They will have become advocates for a high-quality education for all children in Armenia and beyond. They will have become active citizens in their communities, embodying value and pride in the history and culture of their regions.
By developing and enhancing the opportunities available to upcoming generations, our students will be the transformation needed to shape Armenia’s future. Our students will be locally-rooted, globally-informed leaders, contributing to the systemic development of Armenia and her position in the changing global economy.
The Two-Year Leadership Program
The Fellowship starts with our five-week intensive Summer Institute training program. Participants learn and grow together through comprehensive workshops and hands-on teaching exercises as well as classroom management, mentorship, and community leadership trainings.
As part of our Leadership Development Program, we also cultivate Fellows’ skills as leaders and broaden their professional experience to prepare them for lifelong leadership roles. Through continuous leadership training and coaching, we build upon their skills, talents, and professional experience throughout their two-year commitment.
The Summer Institute training program is the first step of the rigorous and demanding two-year Fellowship. For those Fellows who complete the initial training, their two-year journeys as teachers and leaders in remote communities will be extremely intense, yet satisfying and life-changing. They will be challenged to the fullest but will be given support to overcome these difficulties. After their experiences in placement schools and communities and because of continuous mentorship and leadership development, Fellows complete their commitment as skilled leaders and professionals.
At the end of their two-year commitment, Fellows are inducted as Alumni Ambassadors for Educational Equity, joining a larger movement of lifelong advocates for educational equity whose leadership is formed by their classroom experiences. We cultivate champions for educational excellence and professionals who work in various spheres working toward the vision of a better Armenia.
