What We Do

International House is a leading provider of direct services to Charlotte’s ever-growing international community, which numbers more than 104,000 immigrants and foreign-born citizens. We are a grassroots nonprofit organization with a mission to promote international understanding and to serve immigrants in need.

We offer foreign-language conversation hours, cultural events, an international book club, citizen diplomacy programs, an international women’s group, language classes, free citizenship workshops, legal services for low-income immigrants, and much more. At International House, Charlotteans who are new to the Queen City, along with those who’ve lived in the area for years practice languages, watch films and read books reflective of global experience, and enjoy showcases of guest speakers and performance artists.

Immigrants improve their English skills and learn American customs from volunteer tutors, AmeriCorps members and instructors. In partnership with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, staff coordinate Rising Readers, an English literacy program for students in Tier 1 elementary schools. Our attorneys and paralegals offer legal services for U.S. citizenship and permanent residency to immigrants and refugees.

Our citizen diplomacy program hosts visitors from around the globe. Through short-term visits, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of civic and business fields cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts.

In the Plaza-Midwood area of Charlotte, we’re in good company. International House is the lead tenant of Midwood International & Cultural Center (MICC).
