IV Next is for participants who have completed one year of college or vocational school and up to 25 years old.   
IV Next 2025 will be June 1st - June 13th

While numerous colleges and universities offer study abroad programs in Greece, and our diaspora offers similar opportunities for young adults to explore this beautiful country, IV Next stands out as the sole travel-based program for young adults that places our Greek Orthodox faith at its very core. IV Next uniquely combines professional development, international travel, and the Orthodox Faith into a comprehensive and enriching experience.
