AGBU GENERATION NEXT MENTORSHIP PROGRAM REVISITS THE GETTY MUSEUM

“Venus was a goddess of what? What was the period of this sculpture?”
It was questions like these that AGBU Generation Next mentors and
mentees were asked to answer as they explored the Getty Museum on
March 28, 2004. This list of questions was a launching point for the
students as they learned about the Getty’s artworks and discovered
treasures from centuries past.

Members were free to explore the paintings and sculpture inside the
galleries as well as the monumental architecture of the Getty complex
itself. After lunch in the outdoor picnic area, mentors, mentees, and
task force members relaxed in the Getty Museum gardens and enjoyed the
idyllic setting overlooking much of Los Angeles.

Since its establishment in 1997, AGBU Generation Next mentors and
staff have served over 100 Armenian students ranging from the seventh
to eleventh grades. Adult volunteers from AGBU Generation Next assist
students with issues involving academics, behavior, and acculturation.
By providing positive role models, volunteer mentors help these young
Armenians become responsible, self-sufficient young adults. For more
information, contact Nora Ayvazian by phone, (626) 794-7942, or email,
