About The Paideia Institute

Funds raised at this event will support the work of the Paideia Institute, a non-profit organization with the mission of revitalizing the teaching of the Latin and ancient Greek language and classical culture.  Paideia's initiatives include study abroad programs teaching Latin and Greek language, literature, and material culture in situ in Italy, Greece, and France.  The Institute also runs domestic outreach programs such as Aequora, an after school program that offers free Latin and Greek instruction in underserved communities to improve students' English literacy. All funds raised at this event will go to support scholarships to the Paideia Institute's programs and to support its outreach initiatives.
