The Armenian Studies program initiatives of the Diocesan Department of Youth and Education focus on Armenian schools, teacher training and enrichment, parish initiatives, curriculum, learning resources, and Diocesan cultural programs for teens and adults. In addition to teaching the Armenian language at all levels of proficiency to school age students and learners of all ages, the Armenian Language Program also works to educate people about the history, traditions, and culture of Armenia.

The staff spreads awareness of the Armenian heritage through workshops, classes, presentations, lectures, publications, and a variety of other resources. Gilda Buchakjian Kupelian is director of Armenian language education, and can be reached via e-mail by clicking here.
