WHO WE ARE

The Greek Heritage Society of Southern California (GHS) was established in 1985 to preserve the rich culture, heritage and traditions of Greek immigrants in Southern California. Through its FLOGA (FLOGA) Project (FLOGA in Greek means FLAME and signifies PASSING THE TORCH from generation to generation), the Greek Heritage Society documents the story of early Greek immigrants and highlights continuing generations. In doing so, it provides the community with an extensive database of Southern California's rich Greek American history.

GHS is a non-political, non-profit California corporation, in association with the Basil P. Caloyeras Modern Greek Studies Center at Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles, California) for educational, literacy and educational purposes.


GOALS OF GHS

To establish a Greek-American Archive and Resource Center that will showcase and preserve the artistic, academic, professional and athletic achievements of the local Greek community. To compile historical photos and documents and develop educational materials to stimulate and maintain an interest in Greek culture, literature and heritage. To provide workshops and training programs focusing on the accomplishments of the Greek community and extend this knowledge to members of the community. To work with other cultural and educational organizations for the promotion of cross-cultural studies.
