Welcome to Iowa!
We work to create a prosperous and welcoming community in Iowa
Iowa International Center(IIC) connects Iowans with people from around the world to create a welcoming and prosperous community. We do this by removing language barriers, reducing biases, and offering international exchanges through a variety of services.
Our interpreters can attend appointments with you within a 20-mile radius of the Des Moines metro area, or they can also interpret by phone.
Whether you need to translate a document from English to another language, or vice versa, we can help. We also offer certified translations including notarization.
We offer professional development for English Language Learning (ELL) instructors with a focus on financial literacy, workplace development, and citizenship.
We coordinate professional meetings, visits to educational institutions, business tours, speaking engagements, job shadows, and hospitality dinners with delegates and colleagues in Iowa.
IIC is excited to announce our new Global Citizens Travel Seminar! These seminars will take Iowans to the world and connect them to the global community. Participants will have a chance to participate in value-added meetings, network, build relationships, and explore the world.
Join Iowa International Center(IIC) for events throughout the year that celebrate our global community.
