A new home: the Joly Family Center for International Understanding
With the support of donors, members, students, staff, and community leaders, the Alliance Française embarked on a journey to a new home. Situated in the vibrant Harrison neighborhood of Minneapolis, our new location better fits our needs and gives our community room to grow and thrive.
Located just west of downtown, the building is fully ADA accessible and features increased classroom capacity, dedicated off-street parking, and the space to offer additional cultural programs, education services, special events, and language immersion programs for all ages.
Our inviting new home at the Joly Family Center for International Understanding (The Joly Center) combines Old World charm with modern amenities. The Joly Center has room for us to grow and further our mission to serve our local community by promoting the use and appreciation of French language and cultures.
