BENEFITING: HELLENIC EDUCATION & LANGUAGE PROGRAM INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
The Hellenic Education and Language Program (H.E.L.P.) is a non-for-profit community based initiative of the Hellenic Diaspora of America. Our program is open to all Hellenic community members, and does not reject applicants based on their inability to pay. Our purpose is to provide an in-depth Hellenic Education in all subjects of learning, including Hellenic history, Hellenic language, both modern and ancient, mythology, music, Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, as well as knowledge of the contributions of Hellenism to the world throughout history.
Our mission is to walk in the footsteps of our distinguished ancestors by providing an educational environment that is conducive to the pursuit of knowledge and understanding. The need for Hellenism is evident in all areas and aspects of our lives, including first and foremost thinking critically, learning our cultural identity, community-building, as well as economics, politcs, science and generally, in all walks of life.
H.E.L.P. is educating our children through classical instructional methodology, providing a comprehensive curriculum with a pleasant learning environment, always faithful to Plato's saying on the eduction of children:
"Do not train children to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each".
