American Cultural Association Charity Profile

The Association is formed to promote understanding and intellectual exchange between the peoples of the Kingdom of Morocco and of the United States of America in the following ways:

- by establishing centers for the teaching of languages;
- by providing necessary and useful educational materials for the language learning process;
- by developing programs and activities designed to disseminate the languages and cultures of the two countries; and,
- by organizing conferences, seminars, courses, lectures, exhibits and other events of an educational or cultural nature.

The first American Language Center (ALC) in Morocco was founded by the United States Information Service (USIS) in the late 1950s in Rabat. During the 1960s, USIS opened the American Bookstores (ABS) in Casablanca and Rabat as well as other ALCs around the country until in the early 1970s there were six Centers: Casablanca, Fez, Marrakesh, Meknes, Rabat and Tangier.

In 1978, USIS dissociated itself from the ACA and the current management structure was put in place.

With the opening of ALCs in Tetuan, Kenitra, Mohammedia and Agadir, the ACA today employs more than 400 people, two-thirds of whom are teachers, and has more than 20,000 students.
