The dedicated team of volunteers at the Alliance Française de Washington helps ensure the efficiency and quality of the many programs and services offered by the organization.

AFDC Blog Ambassadors are invited to write articles about French culture, French news and AFDC events for the AFDC blog
Bloggers may write in French or English and may have the opportunity to meet and speak with visiting artists to create their articles. The blog ambassadors will write under their own names and are required to produce new articles on a regular basis.
with an introduction of yourself, a resume, and a one to two-page (two page MAX)
writing sample to apply. No cover letter necessary.
The post should deal with a French or Francophone language or topic of your choice (please avoid politics)
. Although you may absolutely write in the first person, keep in mind that
this blog promotes an organization, not an individual
. This means that although you may certainly use your experiences as inspiration, generic recaps of your study abroad experiences or first trip to France are (most likely) not topics that will be very engaging to our readers.
You should provide a photo for the post’s thumbnail (which is cropped as a square). Additional pictures, images, or links are also welcome to be inserted into the text.
We would like these posts to be fun, engaging, and educational for the readers, so have fun with it yourself!
