The experience of living with a host family will provide you with the opportunity to understand first hand and up close family life in Armenia. It's a unique chance to spend quality time with host siblings and parents at home or outside, sharing past experiences during tea, discussing the workday around dinner, or opening up about future hopes and aspirations during an evening stroll.
In order to encourage such a unique experience, Birthright Armenia provides host family living arrangements. Each pre-screened family in Armenia provides the volunteer with a private bedroom, access to daily hot water/shower, breakfast each morning, and an inviting home.
Although we highly encourage and pay for most or all host family living expenses, obviously the choice is up to you. You may choose to arrange and pay for your own living accommodations while in Armenia.
