Investing in the future of our country is easy and long lasting.
Today, the world is becoming smaller and our children and young adults will grow up in a world that will be more and more “globalized”. They will need to think globally, broaden their perspectives and appreciate and understand cultural differences and attitudes. An understanding of foreign language and culture will play a key role in the development of such skill sets.
As we constantly try to expand the reach of our programs and increase the number of students who have access to Italian language and culture, we rely on grants from Italian Government, private donations, corporate contributions, and the generosity of supporters like you.
