Ionian Village Is Now Accepting Staff Applications

Ionian Village, the travel abroad camping program of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, is now accepting volunteer staff applications for the summer of 2008. Ionian Village staff members have a unique opportunity to play an important role in the spiritual, cultural and social development of Greek Orthodox teens from all over the United States of America as they travel the most significant religious and cultural sites in Greece. 

Staff member responsibilities consist of supervising daily activities and excursions (destinations include the islands of Zakynthos and Kefalonia, Meteora, Ancient Olympia, and the Acropolis), executing the camp curriculum, and assisting in camp administration. Staff members must be Orthodox Christians at least 21 years of age by June 28th, 2008. Greek language skills are not a requirement. Ionian Village staff will volunteer from June 19th to August 18th, 2008 (Medical staff can make shorter time commitments). Staff members will have a four day break in between sessions and the opportunity to extend their stay in Greece when the program has finished. The Ionian Village Office offers round trip airfare New York/Athens, and full room and board for the duration of camp. 

Applicants can download and print a staff application form from our website, www.IonianVillage.org. They may also email or call the Ionian Village office for more information or request a hard copy application. Applications are due on January 21st, 2008.
