The applications for the 2024 cohorts of OriginAL are open now!
February 1 - April 1
OriginAL invites young Albanians from the diaspora, aged 18 to 24, to (re)connect with our cultural roots through a complimentary 2-week journey across Albania and Kosova. OriginAL offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore Albanian heritage, by visiting renowned historical sites and cultural landmarks, by engaging with inspiring people, and by exchanging ideas with like-minded peers.
From today to April 1st 2024, all the diaspora youth within the age group have the opportunity to apply for a lifetime experience that will forge lasting connections with our homelands and people. Registration and application form are accessible through the button below.
Germin and the Global Albanians Foundation are fully committed to organizing three OriginAL cohorts in 2024, with two scheduled for the summer and one in the fall. We extend a heartfelt invitation for you to join us in reaching this significant goal. Your support is crucial in making these transformative journeys possible for the Albanian diaspora youth, enabling them to connect deeply with our heritage and origins.
