EDUCATION

The AGP creates an information network connecting German-language educators to individuals and businesses in Alabama. These connections promote language-learning resources and more, including awareness of what Alabamians can learn from the German system of education and its focus on apprenticeships and skills-based training.

BUSINESS

The AGP supports business development between Alabama and Germany by encouraging direct investment, trade, and tourism. We serve as a facilitator between the two business cultures and foster awareness of the opportunities that Alabamians can find with German businesses and that German businesses can find here in Alabama.

CULTURE

The AGP bridges the gap between two cultures. Whether it’s celebrating Alabama’s German-cultural heritage or introducing German expats to a new lifestyle in Alabama, we work to build cultural awareness and understanding between cultures, including connections with cultural exchange programs.
