About American Councils - mission and vision

American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS is an international not-for-profit organization leading the development and exchange of knowledge between the US and Eastern Europe/Eurasia.

Its mission is to foster independence and democratic development by advancing education and research, cultivating leadership, and empowering individuals and institutions through learning.

Founded in 1974 as an association for area and language professionals, American Councils has focused its expertise on the design and implementation of academic exchange, professional training, distance learning, curriculum and test development, delivery of technical assistance and consulting services, research and evaluation, and institution building.

The American Councils office in Moldova has been active since 1992, and is proud to work together with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in the administration of various exchange programs and programs for alumni development. Currently, Moldovan program participants have been to forty-six states in the United States of America. In addition, our American Language Center offers high-quality English instruction to groups of professionals and to the public in general, based upon a unique curriculum developed by American TEFL specialists.
