The Mission of Alliance Française Nashville

Alliance Française de Nashville is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to increase appreciation for the French language and francophone cultures worldwide and, in so doing, reinforce the Franco-American friendship. To fulfill this mission, AFN organizes cultural events in the community, offers French classes and topical workshops, and funds two scholarships annually. AFN is also committed to providing a place where recent arrivals from francophone nations can make significant connections with other French speakers in Nashville.

Alliance Française USA

The Federation of Alliances Françaises USA was founded more than a hundred years ago as an umbrella organization embracing all AF chapters in the United States and Puerto Rico. The Federation’s mission is to support and encourage member chapters in their promotion of the language and culture of French-speaking countries. The Federation also promotes regional meetings and publishes a magazine and a newsletter. Additional support includes the resources of a Cultural Offerings à la carte Service and financial grants and awards to member chapters. Click here for more information about the Federation.

AF has three missions: to offer French language classes, to increase appreciation for the French culture and cultures of other francophone countries, and to promote cultural diversity by highlighting the value of all cultures.
