An Extraordinary Opportunity
North Carolina is a new immigrant gateway state, featuring the fastest growing foreign-born population in the country. Our state has an extraordinary opportunity to approach immigrant integration in a new and powerful way -- to pioneer 21st century democracy building and inclusive community engagement in a region that has never before experienced this type of demographic shift.
What if North Carolina were to embrace the belief that immigrant integration is a dynamic two-way process in which newcomers and the community receiving them work collaboratively to build more vibrant, prosperous and cohesive society?
Our educational services are designed to meet the immediate and critical needs of newcomers to our community and serve as a catalyst for intentional community integration. Our goal is to meet people where they are, honor their innate capacity to be their own best advocates, while building sustainable and interconnected communities.
