Its 2018 conference was the largest ever, bringing together nearly 10,000 professionals from over 110 countries.
This annual conference is an excellent opportunity for CYA members from Greece and the US to network with their global colleagues, share knowledge and draw inspiration from their experience and outlooks.
Our team was very pleased to welcome to the CYA booth alumni, friends, existing and potential partners who expressed their eagerness to hear all about the latest developments at CYA and discover more about its mission and philosophy.
CYA alumna Shannon Fleming, currently working with AMIDEAST (America-Mideast Educational and Training Services, Inc.), said:"It was wonderful to reunite with CYA! Studying in Greece was truly an incredible experience I will carry with me always!"

When he retired he taught as a visiting professor at McGill and Vanderbilt. He and Jean eventually settled in Athens and CYA had the benefit to have Raphael act as Academic Director and teach a
philosophy class. He died in 1968, symbolically in mid-ocean, on one of their trips back to the US.
At a memorial service held on September 18, 1968 Professor Roderick Firth said about Raphael Demos, “Raphael’s effectiveness as a teacher had its roots in the source of all good teaching. He cared – he really cared – about reaching his students, not so much to win them to some particular point of view, for he was able to discuss Plato and William James with equal enthusiasm, but rather to open their eyes to the delights that he himself found in the study of philosophy. There is no substitute for this kind of motivation”.
