Why Diaspora Youth, and what are the best global practices?

On December 11, we launched the #OriginAL, a program that aims to provide a volunteer, educational and cultural experience for Diaspora Youth that will strengthen their sense of ethnic identity and create long-lasting connections, especially with their youth peers in our homeland countries. During the launching we facilitated a panel aimed to shed light on the importance of engaging the diaspora youth, and showcase some of the most promising programs and practices in this regard worldwide with the following speakers: 

  • Mike Bailey, The Practical Fundraiser, Independent Consultant based in Israel with over 20 years experience in fundraising from Israeli Diaspora,
  • Vartan Marashlyan, Executive Director, Repat Armenia Foundation,
  • Sevan Kabakian, Country Director, Birthright Armenia
    • Moderator: Martin Russell, The Networking Institute – Ireland
