WHO ARE WE?
The Alliance Française of Atlanta is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the French language and Francophone cultures through cross-cultural exchange through teaching French and enriching cultural programs. Headquartered in Paris, France, the Alliance Française is a part of an international network. The Alliance Française of Atlanta is the fourth largest Alliance Française in the United States.
Giving to the Alliance Française is sowing a seed for increased cross-cultural exchanges in our schools and to the metro-communities of Atlanta. Will you support us as we continue to promote the French language and francophone cultures through our educational and cultural initiatives?
WHERE WE USE YOUR SUPPORT
1. Youth Outreach Program
This program provides cultural and artistic programs, relevant to the French-speaking world, to expose young people to the world through the arts and culture. French language unites 200 million people in more than 56 countries around the world. The purpose of this program is to inspire youth, complement their studies, increase their interest in languages and cultures, and open their minds to the world.
We invite Title I schools in metro-Atlanta to choose from the list of workshops that we offer through our Youth Outreach Program at no cost. This program is an aid to teachers in their curriculum, and to students in their path to French fluency.
It is through the gracious support of donors like YOU that we are able to offer this program at no cost
to schools. Help us continue expanding our programs and helping more Title I schools by making a donation today.

2. Cultural Programming
Not only do we teach French to kids and adults, we also devote many resources to our cultural programs. We host programs connected to Francophone culture, music, art, food, film, dance, and travel. We believe that understanding the French and francophone cultures play an integral role in second language acquisition.
All of our programs are free or kept at the lowest price possible to ensure maximum participation from the local community. We want everyone to be able to easily partake in culturally diverse and enriching activities.
