In addition, educational programs such as "Journey to Greece" and Washington Internships are sponsored by the Foundation.

AHEPA's philanthropic deeds are evident in the restoration of the Statue of Liberty and Ell
|Description||AHEPA is the largest and oldest American-based, Greek heritage grassroots membership organization. Our scope is international with chapters in the US, Canada, Greece, and "sister" chapters in Australia and New Zealand.

This is the essence of our heritage. This is the core of our mission.|
