The American Farm School, in collaboration with Rutgers University, is offering a unique training program on Alternative Tourism as part of the “Recharging the Youth: New Agriculture for the New Generation” project funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The program is two semesters long and is offered in Thessaloniki, Ioannina, and Volos. After completion, exceptional participants have the opportunity to complete a paid, two-month apprenticeship at select alternative tourism businesses collaborating with the program.
The Alternative Tourism program is a creative workshop, as theoretical training is based on interaction and participatory learning, in addition to its inclusion of educational visits and a keynote speaker series. The intensive program promises to provide fruitful academic experiences, extensive theoretical instruction, and experiential learning opportunities for all participants.
