    (ANA-MPA) -- The "Journey to Greece" programme offered by AHEPA in collaboration with the University of Indianapolis in Athens entered its fifth consecutive year in 2010, with sponsorship by the National Hellenic Society.

    Journey to Greece 2010's first session begins on July 3 and ends on July 16; the second session starts July 10 and ends Aug 6.

    The programme combines classes in Greek studies with excursions to places of interest. Since the majority of students are Greek-Americans, the "Journey" holds a particular significance for them as they return to their ancestral home. Moreover, each year participating students have been invited to visit the US embassy in Athens and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.

    The University of Indianapolis has worked with AHEPA to offer the programme since 2006.

    The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), the largest association of Greek Americans and philhellenes in the world, is well known for its work in philanthropy, education and promotion of Hellenism.

    The National Hellenic Society, whose mission is to celebrate Hellenic heritage by sponsoring and organising programmes and activities that promote and preserve the values and ideals of Hellenic culture, first became involved in the Journey programme to Greece in 2009, offering sponsorship for the studentsā pilgrimage to visit Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I.

    This year the NHS is providing funding for an educational cruise in the Aegean, which will take students to several places of historical interest.
