Campaigns for raising public awareness, development of policies, strategies and plans for preservation of cultural heritage, community service activities & camps and volunteer exchanges – they all fall under the “Advocacy & Community Service” Program.

The oldest program of the Foundation is  “Education” covering trainings and field schools in archaeology and heritage conservation, a master’s program  in Balkan and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology, and Fulbright exchange for students and researchers.
