The Hellenic American Union has a long record of forging successful and enduring partnerships.
We cooperate with internationally renowned testing, certification, and training organizations but also less well-known but pioneering or entrepreneurial (start-up) organizations and venues. We collaborate with visual artists, thinkers, writers, poets, and other creatives in designing our program of cultural events. And we recruit and work with rigorously qualified instructors and talented textbook authors to teach our courses and write our books.
We also partner with other cultural and educational institutions, public agencies, private foundations, and cultural centers in the United States, Europe, and Greece. Here are some of the organizations with which we currently collaborate in our cultural, educational, and certification programs.
