Chicago Greektown Educational Foundation

Summer Program Grant

The Chicago Greektown Educational Foundation is sponsoring students who are interested in continuing their Greek language education this summer via virtual Greek language classes.  The classes will be taught by instructors from the Ellinopoula language learning platform and will meet once a week via Zoom.

Classes will take place between June 15 and September 5 and will be broken up by age groups (ages 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, or 12+) and Greek level. Each class will last approximately 60-90 minutes and will meet once a week.  While class times are still being finalized, it is expected that classes will meet on either Mondays (4 p.m.), Wednesdays (4 p.m.), Thursdays (10 a.m.), or Saturdays (10 a.m). Class times will be finalized and announced prior to June 15.

Students will be provided free access to the Ellinopoula online language learning platform. Interested families will need to provide:

  • a computer or tablet with an internet connection to enable Zoom participation
  • parent supervision during class
  • a commitment to attending at least 80% of the classes 

If your student is interested in enthusiastically participating in this program, please send an email to with your student’s age, number of years in Greek school and their Greek level by Friday, June 12. 

Please note: space is limited and available on a first come first served basis. Sending an email to express your interest does not guarantee a space in the program. We will provide a reply either confirming participation or informing you that spaces are full.
