Dates Announced for Ionian Village IV Next Summer Program

NEW YORK — Under the guidance of the Holy Archdiocese, Ionian Village’s “IV Next” program will be offered July 25th – August 5th, 2021.  The program will be for fully vaccinated young adults.  Participants must be either ages 19-24, and/or students from the high school class of 2020 (even if only age 18).  Anyone that does not meet that exact criteria, unfortunately, will not be permitted to register this summer.  The price of IV Next for participants is $1,650.

At this time, there are limited spots left, so sign up today! IV Next, sponsored in part by Leadership 100, allows participants to experience the beauty of Greece, the richness of our faith, and interact with successful professionals from Leadership 100 that give practical advice toward one’s career and faith.

Important Information regarding IV Next 2021:


All IV Next participants must travel to and from Greece from JFK Airport in NYC.  As a participant, you are financially responsible for your transportation to and from JFK.  You MUST arrive at JFK no less than 4 hours prior to Greece departure.

Participants will have the option to change their flight dates to have more time in Greece either before or after the IV Next Program.  This preference will be made in the travel itinerary form and will be coordinated with our travel company ProTravel. There may be an additional fee depending on the dates of travel.

COVID-19 and other Vaccinations:

As previously stated, all participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14-days prior to departure (which means that for those vaccines which require two shots, the second shot must be given no later than July 10).  Proof of vaccination will be required.   If you do not wish to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus you will not be allowed to attend. Further COVID protocols will be implemented, established, and shared with participants.  To the extent that additional COVID-related requirements are subsequently imposed by local authorities, we will notify participants immediately.

Sign up Here today, registration will close soon!
