New Americans deserve a supportive place to learn, find jobs, and get the time and assistance they need to adjust to all the aspects of living in a new culture. The International Institute of MN provides that space.
Advancing New Americans
Minnesota Workforce Facts
Over the next decade, we will need 25,000 professional caregivers. We have a huge and growing need for healthcare workers, and we need them fast.
Fact-Check: Children and Family
Nearly 1 in 6 children in Minnesota has at least one immigrant parent. Minnesotans have a long history of welcoming New Americans to their new home, and we need to make sure that continues.
Multi-Year Funding Matters
Multi-year funding allows nonprofits to focus on the most important work, which, in turn, helps maximize efficiency and progress. The funding covers medical careers training, hospitality training, and personal health education for our New Americans so they can get to work, help others, and make their mark.
United Way Women United helps mothers balance their work and personal lives, amplifying their career path within their field. To date, we have more than 200 graduates, changing lives exponentially within the community.
