As his grandparents were from Armenia, Chackarian and his father, Richard, traveled to that nation a number of years ago in order to explore their roots. During their time there they found out that there were no mentoring programs in place for orphans. In order to remedy this situation they co-founded the Nor Luyce Mentoring Center for Youth. This organization supports young women who are aging out of the system. They are taught the skills they need to get a job and live on their own. Many of the young girls helped by this program have gone on to success.
