The American Corner in Vlora was opened in December, 2004 and is located on the first floor of the City Library.
American Corner Vlora hosts daily educational and cultural programs for a variety of ages. It also provides information for those who wish to study in American universities. Thanks to support from Peace Corps Volunteeers, English Language Fellows, Alumni, embassy staff, and volunteers, the Corner offers U.S. cultural programming and English Language teaching through a number of resources and a wide range of activities for youth.
Other activities at the Corner include: Technology and Innovation Classes, Presentations/workshops/discussions/conversation hour (with Peace Corps Volunteers, Embassy speakers, English Language Fellows, and volunteers); Clubs (Reading Club, Kids Club, Drama Club, Book Club); Film screenings/Movie Hour, Poster shows; and holiday celebrations.
AC Vlora has a strong partnership with Vlora Youth Center. They organize different activities on civic participation and youth engagement to improve their community and promote values of democracy and human rights.
The Corner has one coordinator and is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 3:00pm and Saturdays until 2:00pm.
