CYA helps dozens of students arrange volunteer or internship experiences while they’re studying abroad in Athens. Students have done everything from volunteering in law firms to assisting beekeepers. For many years Nadia Meliniotis (Executive Director of Student Affairs) has collaborated closely with Insider Publications in Athens to offer students a journalism and writing Internship opportunity at their Athenian, English-language magazine. A great way help students learn new skills, gain experience and build networks while in Athens.
Kitab (meaning book and also knowledge) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to working with refugee teens and young adults residing in Greece. Kitab creates an individualized education plan for each student, and matches them with college students in Athens and with professionals from anywhere around the world and work towards certification in the careers of their choice.
CYA Teaming-up with Kitab
CYA has become one of the few study abroad programs to be approved by the Bonner Foundation. This means that Bonner students can now study abroad at CYA and complete their volunteer community service in Greece, with the support of CYA’s strong community partnerships.
