A truly unique experience. After only a few weeks in Cyprus, I left with lifelong friends from all corners of the globe! All whilst forging a deeper connection to our Cypriot traditions, culture and language. Wish I could do it all again!

– Nethie Savva, UK, NDCP 2017


Every day on NDCP was unique compared to the previous day and I will always hold this trip so close to my heart. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat and strongly suggest any person considering NDCP to go for it!

– Natalya Yannikarkis, South Africa, NDCP 2018


“When they said NDCP changes your life, they really aren’t lying. In 2014, I had the privilege of being accepted to participate on this trip of a lifetime. Spending 3 weeks exploring this beautiful island with other Cypriots from all over the world, we immersed ourselves in the culture, history, food, and of course the nightlife. You truly make the most amazing lifelong friendships and memories that you will reminisce pretty much every day”

– Helena Marie-Papayianis, Australia, NDCP 2014

NCCT offers an incredible opportunity for young Cypriots to build connections with the island, its people and the broader Cypriot diaspora. It provides a structured programme for the rediscovery of what it means to be Cypriot by contextualising language, religion and ethnicity through the history of Cyprus and the experiences of its people.

– Emmanuel Diinis, Australia, NCCT 2019


You are in a quaint-style hotel, take in the breath-taking panoramic mountainous view as you are in one of the highest villages in Troodos mountains. From nature hikes through the Akamas peninsula and touring historical byzantine monasteries to wine tasting tours and sailing into the sunset, NCCT is a once in a lifetime culturally immersive travel experience with professional guided tours that are both educational and fun.”

– Andrea Themistokleous, Canada, NCCT 2019


You will always learn something new through the places you visit, through conversations with the locals and through the friendships you form with other participants on the trip. Take the leap of faith and learn about your roots, your culture and who you are.

– Nicholas Nicou, UK, NCCT 2017
