Heritage Greece 2017 has officially begun! Sixty-two students will share a two-and-a-half week cultural and educational immersion experience at the American College of Greece in Athens. It is a cultural, educational, and inspirational odyssey, and participants are accompanied by 20 students from the American College of Greece. It is a trip that alumni have described as a life-changing experience. The group met on Thursday, June 8 for orientation in Washington, DC, and a reception was graciously hosted at AHEPA Headquarters with the Heritage Greece 2017 class, NHS members, and Greek American mentors in attendance. The students will leave the following day.
Heritage Greece is about “connections”– connecting the students to their respective Greek roots, heritage, identity, and to one another as they forge life-long relationships. This year marks the eighth year of NHS’ empirical studies of the Heritage Greece Program, and we’ve compiled enough data to support a broader study of the positive impact the Program has on these students and their families. It is truly remarkable! This year’s Heritage Greece trip includes taking a Greek language class at the American College of Greece, touring the Parthenon and Delphi, taking a weekend trip to the Peloponnesus, and more!
