Your Membership Really Matters!

During this difficult time for us all, GIPA is still here for our families and our teachers. While we face some very real financial challenges, we remain committed to our core mission to provide financial support to the German language program and to promote academic excellence in German language education.

When it was founded over 35 years ago, the German language program in Miami-Dade County became the model for public school language programs across the country. We hope to continue to be a guiding light during these challenging times.

That’s why your 2022-23 GIPA membership at the highest level you’re comfortable with will help to ensure your child can continue to receive an outstanding German education this year from our highly trained, native-speaking teachers.

Thank you for your incredible support. We can’t do this without you!
