Volunteer Program

SOAR is the only organization whose singular mission is to provide humanitarian relief to orphaned Armenians around the world. As such, SOAR's Volunteer Program offers unique opportunities for Armenian and non-Armenian students and professionals to volunteer throughout the year with orphaned children and adults in Armenia.

The Program has three components:

1) The Professional Delegation involves short-term medical, dental, and physical therapy missions to undertake a specific project.

2) Student Internships allow undergraduate and graduate students to spend a semester or full academic year volunteering at one of the orphanages in Armenia. School credit is available when appropriate.

3) Summer Camp volunteers provided assistance to one of two orphan summer camps in Armenia. The placements can be between one week and summer-long. Students and adults with interest and training in athletics, art, foreign languages, music, and religion are welcome to apply.

All three components of the volunteer Program are overseen by SOAR-Detroit.
