At our  ILC-MATH-YMCA, we believe in celebrating milestones and achievements, big or small. Yesterday’s triple party was a testament to that. We were thrilled to celebrate the graduation of several of our students who have put in the hard work and dedication to complete the six-month cycle of classes of Greek and soft skills. It was heartwarming to see them receive their certificates and witness the pride and joy on their faces.

In addition to the graduation, we also celebrated the international day of the refugee, which is an important reminder of the struggles and challenges that refugees face around the world. We wanted to honor this day by showing our support and solidarity with those who are seeking a better life and a brighter future.

Last but not least, we also celebrated the break for the summer season of our voluntary activity “Conversational coffees”. This activity brings together volunteers and students in a relaxed and informal setting where they can practice their language skills and make new friends. It’s been a great success and we’re looking forward to continuing it in the future.

The party was full of emotions and laughter, with touching speeches, beautiful songs, and even a tango performance! It was a great opportunity to connect with each other, share stories and experiences, and celebrate our achievements as a community.

We want to congratulate all the graduates, thank all the volunteers for their hard work and dedication, and express our gratitude to all the staff members who make our program possible. Together, we’re building a stronger and more inclusive community that values education, diversity, and compassion.
