Teens, Special Programs

The Alliance Française of Washington DC is proud to be a sought-after place of interest for local high school students studying French and in need of either Community Service Hours (Student Service Learning Hours) or Short to Long-Term Internships for their high school requirements.

There are different ways for a teen to help out at AFDC:

For young people, active participation in the life of our organization proves beneficial at multiple levels:

CIT Program (applications for 2023 Summer Camps are now closed)

Summer Camps take place over the course of 7 weeks and are held at our main address (2142 Wyoming Ave NW), a 15-minute walk from the Dupont Circle/ Woodley Park metro stations.

Hours: 8:30am-3:30pm

Days: Monday-Friday

If you study/speak French and need some Student Service-Learning hours, this is a perfect opportunity to improve your French. You will be surrounded by French teachers and some French-speaking children in a full immersion program. You can be a CIT for one, seven or any number of weeks in between!

Bonus: If you wish to take classes at AFDC, after 30 hours of volunteering, you will earn credits towards attending a French class for FREE at the Alliance Française.

To apply, please send your resume, cover letter and a list of three references (teachers and adults who know you well) to children@francedc.org. You will be contacted for an interview.
