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.

Volunteers at the Alliance work in the library/médiathèque, at cultural events, and in the administrative offices. Projects always vary, but volunteers may be asked to carry out such tasks as: shelving books, setting up and breaking down events, serving food and beverages, directing visitors in the library and guests at events, updating databases, prepping development documents, assisting with fundraising events, and more.

Why Volunteer at the Alliance?

Volunteering with the Alliance is an opportunity to engage yourself in DC’s Francophone community with others who share the same interests and passions as you. Volunteers not only provide valuable to support to the Alliance staff, but also serve as ambassadors for the Alliance to the general public.
