Hellenic Link - Midwest


HELLENIC LINK - MIDWEST
Established 1985

A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION LINKING HELLENES AND PHILHELLENES THROUGH CULTURAL, SCIENTIFIC, SOCIAL, AND PHILANTHROPIC ACTIVITIES

Hellenic Link - Midwest (formerly known as Krikos) is a dynamic Hellenic-American professional organization in the Chicagoland area.

Since its inception in 1985, Hellenic Link - Midwest has consistently showcased activities on a  variety of topics that are in the forefront of the Hellenic-American community’s interests.

These activities include lectures, symposia and conferences where a variety of prominent speakers ranging from ambassadors to journalists to university professors have provided insights into recent history or have lectured on topics of current interest in politics, economics, education, the arts, and sciences.

Hellenic culture has been promoted through theatrical plays by visiting theater companies, such as the Nefeli Troupe of Toronto, and through musical tributes to March 25, 1821.

Diversity is a key feature of Hellenic Link - Midwest.

In addition to informing and culturally enriching, Hellenic Link - Midwest assists young Greek-Americans to achieve their career goals through its scholarship program. Each year a number of scholarships are awarded at the Annual Dinner Dance. These scholarships are given to students of Greek descent who are enrolled in accredited United States colleges or universities. 

Another aspect of Hellenic Link’s involvement in the community is the continuous support of worthwhile causes, such as the Hellenic Museum and the Greek-American Nursing Home.
