Goethe Zentrum Atlanta

Mr. McBryan was Chairman of the Board of Friends of Goethe, Inc. dba Goethe Zentrum Atlanta, the German Cultural Center, from November 2019 to November 2022.  He and the other board members and the Goethe Zentrum’s Executive Director, Mr. Oliver Gorf, culminated their work during the two years of the COVID-19 Pandemic by finding and moving the Zentrum into a new space on the plaza level of Peachtree Center in downtown Atlanta. Mr. McBryan invites you to learn more about the Goethe Zentrum.

Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta is the preeminent non-profit source for German language instruction, heritage, and cultural exposure in the southeastern United States. We deliver multi-level, certified language courses and mission-centric programs that foster communication, education, collaboration, and cultural exchange for passionate learners for whom German is not their first language and natives of German-speaking countries and people residing in the Southeastern United States interested in or affiliated with Germany or Europe through heritage, career, or personal experiences. We provide experiences to enhance learning and the development of personal and professional relationships. Unlike more costly college and University environments, commercial language centers, exclusive online services, or networking groups, we combine immersive classroom and online learning, as well as integrated cultural programs, at a significant financial value, resulting in enriched learning opportunities, new relationships, and a greater sense of community.
