Volunteer In Greece
Accepting applications in the spring of 2024, this inspiring, 14-day cultural experience is tailored for Canadian youth aged 13 to 29. Our program is designed to ignite the spirit of volunteerism while fostering self-discovery in the heart of Hellenism.
Greece, often hailed as the cradle of Western civilization, continues to influence our Western cultures through its enduring Hellenic values. This program provides a life-enriching experience that can shape young Hellenes and Philhellenes into more confident, culturally aware, and socially engaged community leaders.
In collaboration with our partners, our program aims to achieve the following:
- Youth Empowerment: Empower youth through non-formal education, youth engagement, lifelong learning, and the promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation, especially among female youth.
- Intercultural Dialogue: Foster intercultural and interreligious awareness and solidarity, as well as bridging connections between Europe and Canada.
- Active Citizenship: Cultivate active participation and civic engagement among young individuals, equipping them to tackle emerging challenges and become change-makers within their local communities.
- Environment: Actively champion the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and environmental causes while promoting green growth and sustainable social and economic models.
- International Cooperation: Strengthen cross-border civil society by facilitating knowledge transfer and the sharing of best practices.
Program details will be announced in the spring of 2024.
