Giving back to society is an important mission for Ara Chackerian. After visiting Armenia with his father in 2009, Ara helped start the Nor Luyce, or “new light” mentoring program. This program pairs young women from low-income families and orphanages with positive role model-mentors, and helps them to find the skills to create a more promising future for themselves.
In addition to the Nor Luyce program, Chackerian maintains investment in several youth development and empowerment programs, as well as an ecologically sustainable Nicaraguan teak plantation. Check out pinterest.com for more info about his travels and philanthropic investments.
