The goals of the Datev Institute are:
- To instill and nurture the Armenian Christian faith and identity in our youth.
- To encourage Armenian youth to become more involved in the life of the Church.
- To discuss youth-related issues with Armenian clergy and teachers.
- To provide a forum for our youth to expand their knowledge of Armenian culture through language, poetry, music, song and dance.
IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR DATEV 2021:
The Prelacy’s St. Gregory of Datev Institute will hold a condensed online Summer Program for youth ages 13-18, from June 28 to July 2, 2021, instead of its regular sessions at St. Mary of Providence Center in Elverson, Pennsylvania.
There will be an hour long class (11am to noon), Monday to Friday, and will include a brief church service, followed by mini sessions on the Bible, Armenian Church history and a panel discussion on current issues.
We invite our youth, and especially past Datevatsis, to take part in this unique Christian educational program.
