In 2011, the AGBU Hye Geen launched a TV program with the goal of educating recent Armenian immigrants who have moved to the Los Angeles area from the Middle East and Armenia.
Many of our new Armenian immigrants are vulnerable. Some barriers to adapting to the American culture include not knowing how to speak the English language (e.g., understanding what is being spoken), the lack of transportation to participate in community and civil society events, minimal financial resources, and the minimal supervision of children in certain public schools. Most new immigrants are so involved in their day-to-day survival that they are not even aware of what solutions might be available to them.
The mission of the AGBU Hye Geen TV is to help families cope with new trends and concepts. Furthermore, the mission of the program is to give the Armenian woman an opportunity to discuss her perspective of every day events through a wide distribution channel, the TV.Moreover, professional psychologists, educators, and community leaders are routinely invited to address the many different aspects of daily problems, which affect the family and create adversity.
The AGBU Hye Geen TV program is pre-taped and televised every other Tuesday, from 8:00-9:00pm. on AABCTV, a channel on some cable networks in the Los Angeles area. The program is usually hosted by Mary Mouradian and Lousineh Nalbandyan.
If you have a program idea and/or would like to volunteer, please contact us.
