Our Partner and Volunteer Activites

American Corners are dedicated information spaces hosted in schools, libraries, and other partner institutions worldwide. The American Corners are friendly, accessible spaces, open to public, that provide current and reliable information about the United States through bilingual book and magazine collections, play-ways, film and documentaries, poster exhibitions, and guides for research on the United States. At the same time, the corners organize events, presentations, workshops, and dialogues with U.S. experts in areas that include educational advising. It is also a meeting place for US alumni, host to conversation and study groups, and great place to hang out while away an hour or two!
