Our mission
Chartre de l'Alliance Française

L'Alliance française est un mouvement international créé en 1883, apolitique et non confessionnel, qui s'est donné pour mission d'enseigner la langue française dans le monde, d'organiser des manifestations culturelles, de rassembler à l'étranger les amis de la France et de développer la connaissance et le goût des cultures francophones. L’Alliance française souhaite favoriser, à travers le dialogue des cultures, une meilleure compréhension entre les peuples et un esprit de coopération dans la solidarité et le respect mutuel. Ce mouvement rassemble les Alliances françaises en activité dans le monde et la Fondation Alliance française.
The Alliance Française de Tallahassee's mission is to encourage and develop knowledge of the French language and Francophone cultures and to foster cultural, intellectual and artistic exchanges between the people of the Tallahassee area and of French speaking countries.

The Alliance Française de Tallahassee (AFTally) is an independent, non-profit, non-political, non discriminatory organization.
