Our Mission Statement

Our mission at the Hellenic Roots Foundation is to preserve, promote, and perpetuate Hellenic culture and heritage in NYC through various artistic productions, re-enactments of traditions and rituals, the fabrication and preservation of traditional Hellenic garb, the study of traditional Hellenic instruments, dance, music & song, the study of Hellenic history, language and culture, educational workshops & seminars, and other various social functions.

Our goal is to educate Hellenes and Philhellenes alike on Hellenic ideals set forth from antiquity till the present day that have played a major role in the development of the world we live in. This knowledge will enrich the lives of people from all walks of life, and benefit young and old by continuing to insure that Hellenic heritage and culture remain alive as a thread in the diverse ethnic tapestry that is NYC.
