The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) is by far the largest Greek-American organization. Its scope is international - with chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia and Greece / Cyprus. AHEPA was founded July 26, 1922, in Atlanta, Georgia, by visionary Americans of Greek descent to protect Hellenes from the evils of bigotry and to help assimilate them into American society in the early 20th Century. Although a majority of the membership is composed of American of Hellenic (Greek) descent, application for membership is open to everyone who believes in the mission of the organization.




AHEPA District 6 has numerous events each year meant to promote Hellenic culture, serve the community, and provide networking opportunities. Take a look below at our highlighted upcoming events or click "Full Schedule of Events" to see our full calendar. We hope to see you soon!
