International House envisions a Charlotte that welcomes and embraces the world.
Our mission is to promote international understanding and help immigrants integrate fully into our community.
International House has been working since 1981 to build an inclusive, welcoming Charlotte - a goal that is more relevant now than at any point in our 35 year history. Charlotte is in the midst of a fundamental transformation into a truly international city, both as an attractive place for immigrants to settle down and as a player on the world stage. International House plays a central role in these changes, and through its various programs and services is helping to ensure that this transformation is beneficial for the City and the people who live in it.
International House serves as a welcoming place for our new neighbors to gain the hard skills needed to succeed in the U.S. and the support network needed to be happy and build the kind of life everyone seeks – full of meaning, community and the prospects for a brighter future.
