Maronite Academy - 2017 - Lebanon - Elearning

The Maronite Academy 2017 Educational trip to Lebanon

Many young Lebanese-descent Christians from different countries around the world will visit Lebanon in August 2018, and partake in the Maronite Academy, an endeavor undertaken by the Maronite Foundation.
Carried for the 6th consecutive year, this initiative aims to bring the Lebanese diaspora’s youth closer to their roots and their country of origin.

After going through a series of comprehensive online courses tackling the history of Lebanon and the Maronite Heritage, the applicants (between the ages of 20 and 30, of Lebanese descent, living abroad)  will have to undergo a written Essay, based on research and on personal/family experience, assessing the reason why they would like to visit Lebanon with the Maronite Foundation, and if they are willing to contribute helping the Foundation by motivating the largest number of Lebanese living abroad among their communities, to recover their Lebanese citizenship.

The Summer Program 2018

"Thank you again for such an unforgettable trip. Having been home for only a few days now, it's hard to believe that so much happened in such a short two weeks with the program and another week with family in Lebanon. Having been given the opportunity to connect to my roots, learn about the history and current state of Lebanon and its people, and meet other Lebanese descendants from across the world is truly a dream that I could never have imagined happening to me.

Every time I think about my experience with the Maronite Academy , I feel overwhelmed and blessed.

The opportunity to experience Lebanon for the first time with the Maronite Foundation has changed my life for the better and I would recommend this program with all of my heart." Gloria Eid, Academy 2016 graduate - Canada.
