Birthright Hellas is a much needed organization that sponsors Greek youth living abroad to visit Greece.

Birthright Hellas is currently a project of the Hellenic Cultural Center of the Southwest: http://www.hcc-sw.org/ and its President Yiannis Remediakis. It is chaired by Dr. Spyros Mezitis, President of the Hellenic Medical Societies of North America, Inc. http://www.hellenicfedmed.org/  and is under the auspices of the General Secretariat for Hellenes Abroad and Public Diplomacy of the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Its first project is arranging for Greek-American youth aged 18-28 years old to attend a two week Hellenic Open University Free Summer School in Mystras of the Southern Peloponnese.

Apart from having young adult Greek-Americans become involved with Greek history, culture, and life, Birthright Hellas hopes by establishing significant private donorship to coordinate other organizations involved in bringing Greek youth from all over the world to visit Greece. Furthermore, strengthening Birthright Hellas will help offset the dangerous population collapse Greece is experiencing with the high cost of living preventing marriages and births, as well as brain drain.
