American Spaces

American Spaces provide public programming spaces and support five core programs:

  • English language learning
  • EducationUSA
  • Alumni activities
  • Cultural programs
  • Information about the US.

American Spaces are partnerships with host-country institutions.  The partner provides a physical space and staff, and the Public Diplomacy Section of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate provides multi-media materials about the United States, training, and equipment, furniture and technical support.  The Spaces provide accurate information about the U.S., including education and cultural programs and opportunities, access to English language resources, and connections to alumni.

American Spaces also provide information about American society, culture, policies, politics, history, literature, and business.

American Spaces staff assist in helping individuals to use resources and programming provided at the space.  American Spaces are open to everyone in the community. Patrons include journalists, academics, businesspeople and women, civic organizations, teachers, students, government officials, military, clergy, and traditional rulers.

Presently, there are nineteen (19) American Spaces in Nigeria; six are sited in the northern part of Nigeria namely Abuja, Bauchi, Jos, Kano, Maiduguri, and Sokoto. The other thirteen (13) Spaces are situated in the south: Lagos (four locations), Abeokuta. Awka, Benin City, Calabar, Enugu, Ibadan, Osogbo, Port Harcourt, Uyo.

American Spaces are the first places to visit when you have questions about the United States. The goal of each space is to provide general, substantive, accurate and free information about the United States to interested parties. Materials in the American Spaces cover a wide range of subjects pertaining to the United States, such as its policies, society, education, and culture. Free, open access is provided to all materials.
