Maids of Athena
Are you between the ages of 14 and 28 with an interest in Hellenism, education, philanthropy and friendship?
The Maids of Athena is an international philanthropic and fraternal organization. It is the Junior Auxiliary to the Daughters of Penelope. Founded in 1930, our Sisterhood quickly grew among young Greek women and today claims Chapters across the US and Canada .The Maids strive to achieve the ideals of Athena, as well as promote the Principles of our Order: Sisterhood, Service, Citizenship, Hellenism, Family and Arete.
Our local chapter is Venus Maleia. We meet monthly, serve coffee hours and support several local philanthropies.
