The Alliance Française of Napa is part of an international cultural non-profit association which promotes French language and culture throughout the world. It is centered in Paris; the American headquarters is in Chicago,IL.
The Napa chapter was formed in 1987. Our goal is to share the spirit and culture of French-speaking countries through language courses, social activities and community outreach. People of all ages come to the Alliance to improve their language skills, to participate in French cultural activities and/or to connect with people speaking their native tongue... and we invite you to join us. It is not necessary to be a French speaker or student, just to want to participate in French culture here in Napa.
The Alliance Francaise's mission in the United States is to encourage and develop knowledge of the French language, French and Francophone cultures, and to foster cultural, intellectual and artistic exchanges between the USA and France and the French-speaking countries. Each Alliance Française is governed locally and is operated as an independant, non-profit, non-political, non-discriminatory organization.
