I n t e r n a t i o n a l   C e n t e r   o f   N e w Haven


 
 
The International Center is a non-profit community based organization. Our programs are based on the idea that both the international community in greater New Haven and the local community can benefit from each other. Our goal is to create a welcoming and supportive environment for the international population in the area and to foster a greater understanding of the wealth and variety of cultures the world has to offer.

Every year, more than 2,000 international students and scholars come to live in the New Haven area, bringing with them their ideas, cultures, languages and customs, which are often very different from the American way of life and from one another’s.

The International Center does its best to assist in creating a new sense of "home" for this international population. Our relationship with visitors starts even before they leave their home countries - we send information about New Haven and the Center and answer any questions they may have. We then act as a welcoming committee when they arrive and provide a support network in New Haven. We help in a variety of areas: finding places to live, stores, restaurants, and schools, and providing quality English instruction, social activities and even volunteer work opportunities. Part of our strategy is to bring people together to get to know each other. We organize lectures, trips, picnics, and special events as well as English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. The following are short descriptions of the various programs the International Center has to offer.
