The CYMA Estate Sale was a great success. All participants showed up eager to sell their belongings to fundraise for this year’s great mission. Thanks to the work of the participants and their families, the tuition for this year’s mission is even more affordable.
The final orientation for participants will be on Saturday, June 19 at the Diocese in Burbank at 11 AM. At this orientation, all participants will receive a packet with important information about what to bring and a final briefing on what sites we will be seeing.

As the CYMA Executive Committee is finalizing the details of this upcoming summer’s trip, the participants are getting excited about developments in this year’s mission. The trip will depart on June 30th and return to the United States on July 31st. Like in 2009, the participants will be staying in a beautiful 6-bedroom house located in the heart of Yerevan. Along with the regular visits to the major tourist attractions around Armenia, the group will once again be taking trips into Artsakh and Gyumri.

As the trip draws closer, CYMA is holding a new type of fundraiser—an Estate Sale on June 5th. It will be taking place at Istanbul Armenian Organization at 19726 Sherman Way, Winnetka CA 91306. All participants will be participating in this and will be selling personal belongings and other items. Make sure to stop by and contribute to a great cause. CYMA works actively to keep the price of the mission low for all participants and fundraisers like this one make that a possibility!

CYMA is finalizing trip details and is ready to send the participants off to the Motherland. We are very excited about the new Community Engagement Program that Father Avedis has been actively planning. The participants will be working at a variety of organizations including the Manana Youth Center, Orran Camp, and the Eco Club. Participants will be interacting with children as they learn about Armenian society.

Not only do we want our participants to be exposed Armenia's rich history, but we also want them to engage in contemporary Armenian society. This is why we are launching a Community Engagement Program where participants will work with an organization of their choice for three days a week. While visiting the spiritually and culturally significant sites are a priority, the month-long duration of the trip allots time to get acquainted with medical clinics, children’s centers, and other organizations in the public and private sector.
