AHEPA - NUGAS Careers Breakfast
Welcome to our website
Message from our President, Anthea Tsaousis
Thank you for venturing to our website!
We hope that our newly-renovated site gives you a taste of the Australian youth wing of the world's largest Hellenic organisation, AHEPA.
AHEPA Youth is different from other Greek youth organisations, in that:
- We are open to Greek and non-Greek Philhellenes alike;
- We fundraise for genuinely humble causes;
- We network with like-minded individuals & professionals;
- Each member has the opportunity to be a leader;
- We aspire to be active Australian and global citizens, and;
- Simultaneously, we share a passion for our Greek heritage.
We are "young & free"
In AHEPA, we are an organisation that is open to Greeks, people of Hellenic descent and to all Australian Philhellenes (‘friends of Hellenism/Greeks/Greece’). We stand for strong community, family and Christian values; we vie for a well-connected and resilient global Greek diaspora; and we seek to give back to Greece, a country that has contributed enormously and invaluably to our world, and to Australia - our home which has fostered and nurtured us and our families.

Interview with the Hon. Mrs Dora Bakoyannis on the Greek Debt Crisis
AHEPA Youth Foundation President Jiannis Tsaousis had the honour of interviewing the Hon. Mrs Dora Bakoyannis, Foreign Minister of the Hellenic Republic (2006-09) on the topic of the Greek debt crisis. Mrs Bakoyannis was warm and extremely accommodative, giving insight to the structural causes of the abominal state in which the Greek government finds itself and the near-abyss to which Greek society has been pushed: state largesse, institutionalised corruption and inefficiency, political clientelism, tax evasion - all masked by the cheap and free-flowing credit from which Greece benefited after joining the Eurozone in 2001/02. Notably, Mrs Bakoyannis remarked that "we must demolish the (modern) Greek state" which has been built on 'hollow' and 'wrong' foundations.
