EFGS started in 2009 thanks to the FLAM grant from the French government.
FLAM - which stands for French as mother tongue - is a program to reinforce the French language and culture for French-speaking children living abroad.
The FLAM Program, created in 2001-2002 by the International Cooperation and Development Administration General of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is aimed at the expatriate French communities. Its goal is to bring support for the establishment of extracurricular activities for French-speaking children, attending American local schools. Since 2009, the program is managed by the AEFE (Agence pour l'Enseignement Français à l'Etranger).
The FLAM program helps maintain and reinforce French as a mother tongue and present various aspects of the French culture, with after-school activities.
More information on the program can be found at http://www.associations-flam.fr/
A conference on all the Associations FLAM was held in May 2017 in Washington DC where the premises of a US FLAM Federation was discussed. For more information, click here.
