Last summer, the HHF sponsored five students to explore their Hellenic heritage and reconnect with their culture through an amazing opportunity called “Heritage Greece”. This year was the first time this program was made available to Greek Canadian students through a significant investment and sponsorship by the Hellenic Heritage Foundation which we plan to continue in 2020.
Applications for the 2020 Heritage Greece Program, taking place this June & July in Greece, are now open.
