Alliances Françaises

Eastern Caribbean Network

The Alliances Françaises in Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines and in Trinidad & Tobago form the network of the Eastern Caribbean. They are the key operators for Francophonie in this geographical region. Situated in the Eastern part of the Caribbean, they also act as the interface between the Americas and Europe.

Hosted in the Alliance Française of Saint Lucia, the General Delegation of the Alliance Française Foundation in the Eastern Caribbean guides and manages the network of French Alliances. The delegation works closely with the Embassy/SCAC and structures present in the “Communautés Francophones d’Amériques” (CFA) such as the Direction des Affaires Culturelles (DAC), education authorities, communities, cultural operators, etc.

Stronger together

With a great deal of autonomy, I have organized cultural events for an audience who is willing to learn about French culture. I was able to develop many skills and I especially improved my level of English. Working at the Alliance Française is a great opportunity to work internationally!

Guillaume Fournier

Cultural Projects Intern | 2021, Alliance Française Saint Lucia

My experience at the Alliance Française of Saint Lucia provided me with an ideal framework to mobilize and strengthen my knowledge in communication, web design, cultural cooperation and French teaching. Thank you to the whole team for trusting in me!

Emmanuelle Gobert

Communcation & Web Editor Intern | 2021, Alliance Française Saint Lucia

Through a wide range of actions and responsibilities, I was able to take initiative and work on concrete projects. This internship confirmed my interest in culture and cooperation. Working for the Alliance Française was a great opportunity!

Kannelle Hughes

Communication & Culture Intern | 2021, Alliance Française Saint Lucia

My internship was a really nice and enriching experience. I had the opportunity to work as a French teacher but also as a pedagogical assistant for 6 months. The team gave me responsabilites and opporunities I would have never thought I’d be able to manage!
