We hope you and yours are safe and well.
We are delighted to share an exciting new initiative, ideal for high-school graduates of Greek heritage:
Know Thyself while exploring Greece, volunteering for a worthy cause, and adventuring on cultural immersion. An exceptional way to enrich the students’ educational and life experiences, and a unique opportunity to deepen the connection and understanding of Greek culture.
College Year in Athens (CYA) is offering two opportunities for Gap Year students: one for those passionate about antiquity with the program “Archaeological Field Work: Excavation, Workshops and Digital Technologies” and one for those interested in learning more about activism and diversity, with the program “Understanding Activism, Diversity, and Equity: the example of Greece“.
While gaining a fuller understanding of a different culture via interactive learning methods, students will create an e-portfolio as a record of what is learned and accomplished through this program. Field trips within Greece will not only allow the broadening of perspective and expanding of the worldview but mainly grant them a unique chance to come into a close encounter with the land of their ancestors whose cultural heritage became the pillar of the western civilization.
CYA, recognizing the difficult times that COVID-19 has created, has established the Fall 2021 Gap Flight Award. A student who will be accepted in the Fall 2021 Gap program, will receive $1,000 to offset the cost of the round-trip ticket to/from Athens, Greece.
College Year in Athens (CYA) is a non-profit educational institution, which, since 1962, provides English-speaking undergraduates (more than 10,000 to date) the transformative experience to study in Athens and familiarize themselves with the Greek culture. To find out how Greece & CYA is faring up, please check out the COVID-19 FAQ on our website here.
If you think this option may be of interest to you, we would welcome the opportunity to provide additional details. In the meantime, please feel free to follow CYA’s social media Facebook , Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube. If you wish to stay up to date with the CYA programs, please subscribe to our email list using this link.
In any case, we are looking forward to hearing how College Year in Athens can help you keep the flame burning!
