NHS Programs–NHS Birthright Greece
Journey to Greece

Sending young Greek Americans to Greece is perhaps the best way to instill a strong sense of identity, forge long-lasting relationships and preserve Greek heritage in a meaningful and relevant way.  Beginning this summer, (August, 2009) NHS will co-sponsor a trip for 35 students attending the AHEPA/University of Indianapolis “Journey to Greece” Program to the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople and to  Thessaloniki, Meteora & Sounion.  The students will meet with His All Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and learn first hand all about Byzantium, its impact and relevance.  NHS is establishing its own peer group program for next summer with the leading American educational institutions as NHS strategic partners.  The trips will provide first-time young visitors to Greece with a life-changing experience.  The youth will spend time together with their peers in Greece learning about their heritage and each other.  The trip will be expanded to make a long-lasting impact on the next generation.
