CYA is of offering a new Gap Year program in Greece for Fall 2021, “Understanding Activism, Diversity, and Equity: the example of Greece”! To all those who are interested in exploring a new culture, while learning more about activism, diversity, and equity issues, this is your opportunity to experience hands-on learning while you volunteer for a good cause.
You will learn how to keep an e-portfolio of your reflections, observations, interactive learning, theoretical knowledge, and involvement with your volunteer work, as a record of what you learned and accomplished through this program.
Trips to the island of Aegina, the Island of Crete, Delphi and the Peloponnese.
Gap Flight Award: A student who will be accepted in the program, will receive $1,000 to offset the cost of the round-trip ticket to/from Athens, Greece.
