CYA
is now offering two opportunities for Gap Year students for Fall 2021: those
who are passionate about antiquity will benefit from the "Archaeological
Field Work: Excavation, Workshops and Digital Technologies
" whereas
there is "Understanding Activism, Diversity, and Equity: the example of
Greece
" for students interested in learning more about those issues.
Programs ideal for high school graduates (over 18 years old) who want to take a
break before college/university in order to engage in educational, cultural,
and physical activities on subjects of interest to them - an exceptional way to
enrich academic and life experiences.

 


The “Archaeological
Field Work: Excavation, Workshops and Digital Technologies
” is a unique
10-week program that explores the relationship between ancient Greek and
modern-day practices via hands-on, experiential learning. It makes evident the
involvement of many disciplines in the understanding and interpretation of our
past. Through active participation in an archaeological dig in the Athenian
seaside suburb of Voula, you will be introduced to the astonishing world of
archaeological fieldwork. 

The next component of this experiential learning will cover lab-work as an
opportunity to introduce you to methods of interpretation of the material
culture brought to light during the excavation. This will include artifact
processing and cataloging as well as artifact restoration and
preservation. 

The engagement with new technologies in archaeological research will provide a
basic theoretical knowledge on the state of the art in digital archaeology,
including GIS, remote-sensing technologies, tablet-based field recording, data
management, and the usefulness of giving you real-world digital skills. The
experience will prepare you for the challenges of a rapidly changing field and
a rapidly changing world. The skills acquired can also be used in a number of
other fields from computer science to fine arts.

 


The “Understanding
Activism, Diversity, and Equity: the example of Greece
” a new 
10-week GAP
Year program in Greece! To all those who are interested in exploring a new
culture, while learning more about activism, diversity, and equity issues, this
is your opportunity to experience hands-on learning while you volunteer for a
good cause.  The aim of this program is to
facilitate a fuller understanding of positive social change and the ways that
people make it happen, and a greater understanding of the social context of
Greece. You will also learn how to keep an e-portfolio of your reflections,
observations, interactive learning, theoretical knowledge, and involvement with
your volunteer work, as a record of what you have learned and accomplished
through this program.

 



Both
programs include trips to the island of Aegina, the island of Crete, Delphi and
the Peloponnese will allow the broadening of perspective and expansion of
worldview. Additionally, participants will learn how to create an e-portfolio,
a key element in the documentation of work done by all students while studying,
traveling, volunteering or interning, whether at home or abroad.
