Celebration of Friendship:

Secret Friends’ Day was first introduced in January 2019. 131 ACS Athens students, faculty and staff exchanged presents and cards with 127 unaccompanied minors living in 5 of the shelters of the HOME Project organization. The Celebrations of Friendship took place after the break, in two separate occasions in order to accommodate the big number of participants. On January 10, 2019, we celebrated Friendship with our Full-time Youth-to-Youth students and on Saturday, January 12, 2019, we celebrated Friendship with our Part-time Youth-to-Youth students.
