Project description

The French Alliance of Brno is a non-profit organisation with two main activities: - As language school, it provides courses of French language, from beginners to advanced students; organizes exams at a national level and delivers an official degree (DELF-DALF). - As a cultural center, it organizes different cultural activities during the year (ciné-café, conferences, tasting evenings), and one month festival presenting French culture through different disciplines (festival Bonjour Brno). It is also a pole for welcoming French people who just moved to Brno and who need advice. The volunteer will closely work with the staff of the French Alliance (director, coordinator, and teachers). We want him to feel part of the French Alliance, his role will be to help us to create a creative and friendly atmosphere, to help the visitors to feel like at home, to facilitate relationships between students and the organisation and to communicate around actions held by the French Alliance.
