Customized Programs

"Make culture work for development"

ODYSSEUS & ATHENA Customized Programs offer colleges, universities, high schools and non-profit organizations the opportunity to provide students with a specialized and guided education abroad experience in Greece. With experience in topics ranging from greek language to environmental and cultural heritage management, ODYSSEUS & ATHENA assists with the process of creating a program that fits specific needs and interests of the organization.


We have worked with faculty members, study abroad offices, and other groups from educational institutions for several decades to bring ideas from the drawing table to a full experience. From short-term programs as short as 10 days to programs as long as three months, we work with institutions to design programs that meet specific programmatic needs.

Our staff works in partnership with clients to design programs, tapping into our local connections to provide suggestions for possible lecture topics and lecturers, organizations to visit, and cultural activities.

Our staff can make logistical arrangements for programs, including local transportation, housing and meals, classroom space, phones, insurance, and excursions or field trips.

What is the process for setting up a customized program

Please Fill out an initial Customized Programs Request form.

ODYSSEUS & ATHENA staff will follow up to set up a phone meeting to discuss the details of the proposal. ODYSSEUS & ATHENA staff in Wales, England will work with Field Office staff to create an initial itinerary and budget, including pricing bands that show the varying costs based on the number of potential participants. This process usually takes 5-7 weeks.

Once the itinerary and budget have been approved by the client, ODYSSEUS & ATHENA will draw up an agreement outlining the specifics of the program.
After the contract is signed by both parties, ODYSSEUS & ATHENA will begin preparations for the proposed program.
