Heritage Greece:

The American Hellenic Council Charitable Foundation is proud to collaborate with the Heritage Greece Program. Heritage Greece is an unforgettable journey to Greece tailored to connect students with their Greek identity and roots through a cultural immersion experience! The program was developed by the National Hellenic Society and is hosted by The American College of Greece.

Heritage Greece is a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore Greek heritage, culture, and identity with a peer group of students from the US and Greece. Students learn language skills within the context of modern Greece and travel to important archaeological locations. Visits to an island and related sites and activities will facilitate strong connections with students’ Greek roots and identity. The Program is a gift from the National Hellenic Society to the selected candidates. The Heritage Greece experience continues beyond Greece as Heritage Greece alumni avail themselves of opportunities to develop professionally as part of the National Hellenic Society network and programs.
