Gabrielle Durana, Founder & Executive Director of EFBA non-profit organization

Durana is the founder and president of Education Française of the Bay Area (EFBA). They are high quality, affordable and focus on teaching French language and culture in a play-based strategy that makes learning a language fun and easy. For the past years, Gabrielle & her team have been developing a new model of affordable high quality part-time school to make accessible a bilingual education for the families who cannot afford the tuition of a full-time international school or who live too far from one.   After four years volunteering her time, she became in October 2012 the 55th paid employee to run the not for profit organization.


About EFBA

EFBA is a nonprofit organization promoting bilingualism, specifically by teaching French in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.  EFBA is a unique French school for children ages 5 to 18. Since French is a minority language in the Bay Area, we have created several programs aiming to offer sufficient exposure to the language to help children willingly and effortlessly become bilingual. We offer 3 interdependent programs throughout the year for all ages and levels: affordable after-school French classes, excellent summer and winter programs, and engaging cultural outings. These programs are different in nature but share the same goal: to expose children to the French language and motivate them to learn through play-based methods adapted to their level.
