3438648383?profile=originalIn New York City, there are 22,000 children living in homes where French is spoken daily. For many families, there are no available options for schooling their children in French, or helping them maintain their home language and their heritage. Together, we can create French-English Dual Language Programs (DLP) in public schools throughout the City.
