Launched in 1997, the mission of the Institute for Immigrant Concerns is to equip a citywide population of adult immigrants and refugees of all nationalities with ESOL skills, computer training, job readiness, and referrals for social services thus empowering them to succeed in their quest for social and economic independence. Since its inception the Institute has provided services to 8,000 immigrants, refugees and asylees from 112 countries. Institute students have included an economist from Guinea, a hotel housekeeper from Columbia, a yak herder from Tibet, a butcher from Peru, a sailor from Burma, and a Togolese journalist. The common ground for our students is their incredible motivation and the support they give to each other as they struggle to become self-sufficient.
