Jeunes Amis du Français


In 2015, the AATF inaugurated the Jeunes Amis du Français, an honorary society for middle and elementary school students. The Jeunes Amis du Français (JAF) functions similarly to the SHF.

Any middle or elementary school teacher can request a JAF Charter for a one-time fee. Because of the diversity of middle school and elementary school programs, a school must select the Cultural or Academic option. Each chapter must induct students at least once per year in order to remain active.

The local school chapter (middle school, junior high school, elementary school) provides a vehicle to focus activities around French language and Francophone literatures and cultures and to encourage participation in the annual writing contest. In addition, students can acquire leadership skills by participating in age-appropriate service activities and leading chapter events.

Membership in the JAF does not imply membership in the SHF nor give the student the right to SHF materials.
