Community Outreach Program

In 1999, AFGLC established the Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies (ICHS), at the University of South Florida, to promote and assist in the study and teaching of Hellenism through the many fields that define Greek civilization and culture.

We are also concerned about reaching out to the American public generally, to make everyone more aware, not only of the glories of the Greek past, but also of the contribution their friends and neighbors of Greek ancestry make to life in America every day.

To assist in this goal, we have compiled a list of speakers in the Tampa Bay area who are available to talk to schools, public and private organizations, churches, etc., on a very broad array of topics. A brochure of the speakers and suggested titles is available.
