Our mission is to be Chicago’s center of French language and French speaking cultures--to promote exchange, understanding, and friendship between Americans and French speaking people--including those from Europe, Canada, Africa, the Caribbean and the Middle East--a world of 220 million French speakers. Through study of another language and its associated cultures, we help to develop a global view of the world.
Volunteering at the Alliance Française is a great way to meet and interact with other Francophone and Francophile community members.
Beginning August 1, 2010, membership will become a requirement for being a volunteer at the Alliance Française. You will find that this policy is in line with other non-profits in the city, including The Art Institute of Chicago, The Field Museum and The Chicago History Museum. Your membership will be valid for one year.
For those of you who are not currently members, you can either download a printable pdf form which you can fill-in and either fax or mail, or register online.
