In the fall of 1959, St. Peter Armenian Church Youth Organization was founded. Membership was open to all young people 18 years of age or older, who were baptized and confirmed in the Armenian Church. Soon after it was organized, it became apparent that there was a need to form a group for teenagers. In 1964, the Junior High League was established for youth fifteen to seventeen years of age. Today the A.C.Y.O. consists of Juniors and Seniors, who gather once a month for a religious service, meeting, a program and social hour. These organizations participate in programs suitable to their age group. Activities include progressive dinners, Armenian dance programs, and group trips. All members work diligently to bring entertainment to the parishioners and to foster Christian Fellowship.
