YPLA is the Los Angeles Chapter of the AGBU Young Professionals, a growing network of individuals, between the ages of 22 and 40. YPLA mirrors the AGBU's mission to preserve and promote Armenian identity and heritage by adding dimensions to the lives of young professional Armenians through educational, cultural, social and humanitarian programs. 

YPLA puts on monthly activities including social-networking and professional career-building events, signature weekend getaways, hiking and camping trips, international video-conferences, service-oriented activities targeted toward Armenian youth, benefit events, as well as casual get-togethers, where up to 250 young Armenians can come together to exchange ideas and get to know each other better. 

YPLA is always looking for individuals who would like to volunteer their time either as a board member or on an event-by-event basis.  For more information on  how to get involved with YPLA, please contact us at:agbu.ypla@gmail.com.
