We believe that the community engagement is key to every project success.
"Hi. I am Anna Barseghyan. I joined the Park’s volunteering program in 2020. The Friendship park volunteering program gave me practical knowledge in events and public discussions’ organization, but most importantly it gave me a fantastic community of friends. Thanks to volunteering, now I have a full time job with Friendship park team”.
"I did the longest volunteer work in the reconstruction program of the "Friendship" park. Even the fact that I study in Yerevan does not prevent me from being active. Thanks to volunteerism, the university discounted tuition by 50 percent in 2022. During this time, I have acquired a number of skills: monitoring, teamwork, organization, quick orientation, and of course, friends. During the reconstruction project of Friendship Park, I got to know many people, made new friends. The most important thing is that thanks to the program I gained self-confidence. I remember that many expressed their disbelief and said that this is one of those projects that will not be implemented. Now I proudly share the works done in the park." - Vardges Aleksanyan

Become a Volunteer
That is why we believe the project would not be integrated with the community needs and expectations if it weren’t a friendly team of over 50 volunteers who helped us build the project from its concept. Our goal for the restoration of Friendship Park is to create a space that brings people together, a place where families can spend time together, and where children can play and explore. With the help of our volunteers, we are confident that we can achieve this goal.
