Maronite Academy - 2017 - Lebanon - Elearning

The Maronite Academy 2017 Educational trip to Lebanon

Many young Lebanese-descent Christians from 13 different countries around the world coming from Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Greece, Mexico, South Africa, Uruguay, USA, and Venezuela visited Lebanon this August 2017, and partook in the Maronite Academy, an endeavor undertaken by the Maronite Foundation.
Carried for the 5th 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.

Moreover, preference was given to those whose purposes, aspirations, and skills are most closely aligned with the mission of the Maronite Foundation in the World and the selection process was highly dependent upon the levels of engagement, motivation, and thinking skills of the participants.

The successful candidates got the chance to live an unforgettable experience; in a free two-week trip to Lebanon from August 5 till August 20, 2017, all expenses fully covered by the Maronite Foundation.

The winners’ stay in Lebanon spanned over two weeks during which they attended daily lectures held at the USEK University by prominent panelists and visited various historical sites and landmarks.
