 a strong start to a new life

The International Institute of Minnesota welcomes New Americans to the Twin Cities and offers them a continuum of services to promote their full integration into our community. The Institute’s programming includes job training and language classes as well as refugee resettlement, immigration, citizenship, and anti-human trafficking services. We are guided by the knowledge that a strong start to a new life enhances the ability of New Americans and their children to contribute fully as members of our community.
