About Us

At Greek Roots, we are dedicated to connecting Hellenic diaspora youth with their Greek culture and heritage and with each other. Through volunteerism, mentorship, events and travel to Greece, we help them engage with their culture and to embrace their identity as Hellenes. 

Our vision is that all youth of Greek descent find value and pride in involving themselves in their Greek communities. We are inclusive, believing in the power of partnerships and our goal is to become an indispensable, non-competing ally to Hellenic organizations that are equally committed to our vision. Our selection of volunteer programs is youth-led and focused on helping young men and women of Greek heritage gain a better understanding of their place in the world as Hellenes. In so doing, we help them develop the leadership skills needed to feel empowered and to perform at the highest levels.
