At Alliance Française de Détroit / French Institute of Michigan (AFD/FIM), we have been sharing our love for the French language and culture here in Michigan for over 30 years.

AFD/FIM Mission

To passionately share the French culture and language as an ongoing celebration that keeps the culture alive and promotes friendship among people of our communities.

AFD/FIM Vision

To live in a world redefined by embracing cultural diversity in a way that inspires, influences, provokes and changes the way we think and act.

The AFD/FIM is a non-profit 501(c)3, cultural and educational association and is, in the US, a Chapter of the Alliance Française.

For more than a century, an ever-increasing number of students of all origins visit the Alliances Françaises. This continued patronage and vitality are mainly due to the ties woven with citizens and sponsors of host countries.

The Alliance Française de Détroit / French Institute of Michigan is proud to be part of the world’s largest network of French language schools and cultural centers. A network with over 830 independently run committees established in 133 countries teaching over 550,000 students. The Fondation Alliance Française, based in France,, is the moral and legal reference of Alliances Françaises.

The Alliance Française de Détroit / French Institute of Michigan is also part of the Federation des Alliances Françaises USA, a non-profit organization which supports its members to fulfill their mission.

In the US, the Délégation générale de la Fondation Alliance Française is the hub of the American Alliances Françaises, located in Washington, DC, and serves the entire network of US Alliances Françaises.
