For the fourth consecutive year, the Order of AHEPA has generously sponsored a scholarship for a student to participate in the Greek America Foundation’s summer volunteer program in Greece, Greek America Corps.
Greek America Corps is an initiative that has changed the lives of dozens of young North Americans by engaging them in meaningful volunteer programs with accredited Greek non-profit organizations.
Every summer, dozens of participants are exposed to the ideals of service, volunteerism and philanthropy — core ideals of the Greek America Foundation’s mission — while also being immersed in modern Greek life and society through unique and immersive cultural experiences.
Greek America Corps has quickly become a centerpiece program of the Greek America Foundation and is entirely funded through the generosity of private individuals and organizations such as the Order of AHEPA. We are proud to receive such continued support from AHEPA — the most historic and important fraternal Greek organization in the United States.
It is no coincidence that the AHEPA’s mission statement aligns so closely with our own.
AHEPA’s statement: To promote the ancient Hellenic ideals of education, philanthropy, civic responsibility, integrity, and family and individual excellence through community service and volunteerism.
Ours: To promote, preserve and perpetuate Greek culture, history and ideals in North America.
We offer our sincerest gratitude to the AHEPA and are preparing for yet another successful season of our summer volunteer programs in Greece. The 2022 summer season includes four programs in locations such as Athens, Thessaloniki and Chios.
