The ACYOA is a Christ-centered organization whose goal is to create among young adults a greater sense of spiritual culture and tradition, and to instill within its members, a true spirit of civic mindedness.
The purpose and role of the ACYOA, in the context of the Diocese of the Armenian Church, is vital importance, as it is charged with preparing and equipping young adults to participate in leadership capacities.
In order to do this the Organization educates its members about the teachings of the Armenian Church and the history of her people. It motivates and stimulates creative thinking and illustrations of faith among its members by providing vehicles through which they may express themselves and demonstrate their faith, abilities, skills, interests, concerns, and willingness to try.
These vehicles enable them to build friendships and lasting relationships. The Organization develops programs through which members participate, feel a sense of belonging, experience meaningful relationships, and are exposed to the Armenian Church and her rich, cultural heritage.
St Leon has a long and rich tradition with ACYOA Seniors. Members are ages 18 and up which typically coincides with being a high school senior or graduate.
