The Maronite Academy 2018 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) had 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 were willing to contribute helping the Foundation by motivating the largest number of Lebanese living abroad among their communities, to recover their Lebanese citizenship.

The successful candidates will get the chance to live an unforgettable experience;a free two-week trip to Lebanon from August 4 till August 19, 2018, all expenses fully covered by the Maronite Foundation.

The Summer Program 2018

"The Maronite Academy 2017 trip was an opportunity to know Lebanon in a special way. With every visit we made and discussions about our roots, we could see that our education, our customs, our ways of doing small things in our respective countries today, came from Lebanon and it proved us once again that our roots are from this place and to this place we belong. Personally, when hearing the talks and living the moments, I could feel immense pride running in my blood and an excitement of being Lebanese. I can say that we didn't visit a new country, but we have visited OUR country, the land that was waiting for us. Most importantly, I understand today that I have to be a role-model within the diaspora community, I started sharing my positive experience and now many foreign friends are already planning some trips to Lebanon. Lebanon is really a country blessed by God. The people in the Maronite Academy and Maronite Foundation are doing extraordinary work for Lebanon. I'm very grateful for them, giving us such a wonderful experience and I hope that the next group of young people will feel the same way." Ana Florencia Apud, Academy 2017 graduate - Argentina.
