Working since 1981 to build an inclusive community in which all people feel welcome and have the tools necessary to succeed.
International House has helped thousands of Charlotte’s foreign-born residents successfully integrate into our community over the years by providing low-cost English classes, personalized tutoring to help people prepare to become U.S. citizens, affordable legal assistance to help people obtain U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status, and critical summer learning opportunities for young English-language learners. At the same time, we help promote the development of a more tolerant community that recognizes the value and contributions of immigrants to Charlotte’s economy, culture and lifestyle, and that offers these newcomers the space and support network needed to be successful in their new home. Our international visitors program introduces leaders from other countries to Charlotte and the businesses and people who make up our city. With opportunities such as our home-hosting program for international visitors and foreign language conversation hours, residents can meet and learn about people from other cultures and countries.
Get involved and explore the world without having to leave Charlotte!
