 The first AHEPA Journey to Greece
Program originated in 1968.   At the
time, it was the first-ever program of its
kind, enabling young Greek Americans
to visit Greece in an effort to strengthen
their bonds with their ancestral homeland.   Over time, AHEPA has partnered
with many schools and the Greek
Ministry of Education to provide an
invaluable experience for students.  
  In sum, since the re-launch of
the initiative in 2006, 78 universities
have accepted credits from the AHEPA
Journey to Greece Program.  Overall,
390 students from 28 states and Canada
have participated in the Journey.
