Who we are...
What we do...
On July 21, 1883, the Alliance Française de Paris was created to promote French language and culture and to foster positive relations between all Francophones and Francophiles. Original members included: the scientist Louis Pasteur, the diplomat Ferdinand de Lesseps, the writers Jules Verne and Ernest Renan, and the publisher Armand Colin.
The Federation of Alliances Françaises USA was founded in 1902 as a nonprofit organization. Currently representing more than 100 chapters in the United States, its national board of 19 members is made of representatives from Alliance Française chapters from across the country.
