Through volunteerism and cultural experiences, Greek Roots connects youth, ages 15-29, with Hellenic values, Greek culture and with each other. Our volunteer programs are youth-led, community-based, and designed to help youth develop the social and leadership skills required to compete at higher levels.
We are progressive and inclusive, welcoming all youth who espouse the values of Hellenism and/or are interested in learning more about Greece and Greek culture. Our vision is a world where the values of Hellenism are embraced by young people everywhere.
Our mentorship program invites community members who are passionate about Hellenism and are willing to give their time to help this next generation of Hellenes find their rightful place in their communities and our world.
