  • Educational advising for those who want to study in the U.S.,
  • Workshops on a range of topics from career skills to English language learning,
  • Classes and clubs introducing new technologies, 21st century digital skills, and academic resources,
  • Films, discussions, and lectures on entrepreneurship, leadership, current events, international affairs, and much more.

The Public Diplomacy at U.S. Embassy Kigali sponsors one American Center and one American Corner in Rwanda.

The American Center Kigali is located inside the U.S. Embassy.  It is the reference center for information about the United States.

American Corners are partnerships with host-country institutions.  The partner provides a physical space and staff, and the Public Diplomacy provides multi-media materials about the United States, training and technical support.  They provide accurate information about the U.S., including education and cultural programs; access to English language resources and connections to alumni.
