If you would like to gain experience, build friendships and networks while in Athens, you can spend some free time helping a good cause. CYA can assist you in finding a suitable placement that suits your interests.
CYA students have volunteered in law firms, marketing companies, refugee centers, kindergartens, and at various non-profit organizations. Internships at some organizations may be arranged as part of specific courses.
Promising students can apply for the ASCSA summer excavation in the Athenian Agora.
