Kyle’s Journey in Armenia

Just Another Peace Corps Blog

  • Kyle? In Armenia?

    My name is Kyle, and I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Noyemberyan, Armenia. I lived here from 2006-2008, and worked as an Information Technology volunteer for the US Peace Corps. In addition to my primary assignment developing my region's WiFi internet, I also taught computer and English classes to area youth. Thank you for visiting!

International Outreach Camp 2008
Posted in Peace Corps by Kyle at 11:55 pm | 3 Comments »

I want to let all of my international readers know that we are now accepting applications for International Outreach Camp (IOC) 2008, for both Armenia and Ukraine. As some of you know, I worked at the IOC camp last summer and had a wonderful time. I met many wonderful, talented, and motivated Armenian and international students, and together we learned a lot and had plenty of fun. This year I am on the core team to organize IOC Armenia 2008. This year we will have a great program, focusing on Civic Leadership, Country Studies (with a Model UN simulation), and Creative Skills.

We are currently accepting applications for international students age 17-22. You can be from any country (including the US), and we welcome anyone who wants to share their culture and learn more about others’ to apply. Here is the flier with more information:

If you are interested in applying, please visit the IOC website. You can also download the application, or read the informational brochure. I hope that some of you will consider, as it was a great experience for me last year, and I’m sure this year will be even better (plus the camp site is much nicer ;))!
