Execute on our primary mission of promoting Hellenism →Ensure our youth learn about their fascinating heritage Demonstrate AHEPA’s leadership in this area Involve young Hellenes into the AHEPA Family →Simple awareness and positive associations →New chapters of SoP (e.g. Bridgeport, CT) and/or MoA Cultivate Philhellenes from an early age →Some participant names: Aaron Evrett, Matthew Novosad, Tonay Gooday, Sabrina Cadeno, Patrick MacCarthy, Daniel Hawkins, et al. Increase membership by signing up non-member parents into AHEPA Family chapters Generate enthusiasm about AHEPA in local communities

11 “Those of us who were fortunate enough to have attended the event and seen how beautifully it brought our young people together are now charged with the desire to convince others that this is something that must be done throughout the AHEPA domain. Brother Nikas has provided us with this Hellenic History Tournament template. Now we all must ‘Go forth and do likewise’.” Joe Keane Chairman, AHEPA Hellenic Cultural Commission Ex-Chairman, AHEPA Educational Foundation
