About The Irish International Immigrant Center:

The Irish International Immigrant Center has supported Irish immigrants since 1989 and has grown into a multiservice center for people from 120 countries helping them find their place in our shared society. Promoting civic engagement and facilitating cultural integration, we work in the US and also in Ireland. Advocating for social change, our vision is one of an integrated society in which all people are treated with respect, dignity and enjoy equal opportunities and protections.

The IIIC works independently, and in partnership with other organizations to maximize our services for our guests, advocate for the rights of immigrants and change legislation. We run a number of cross-community, cross-border programs through our partners in Northern Ireland for young unemployed adults. The IIIC is recognized for its work in promoting civic engagement and bridging cultural and other divides.
