IIC Welcomes Guests from the International Visitor Program
Upon request from the San Francisco International Diplomacy Council, the Intercultural Institute of California/Korean Center Inc., welcomed 20 visitors from 15 different countries.
These distinguished visitors are enhancing their professional experience by touring the United States to learn about NGO's (non-governmental organizations) and non-profit organizations, so that they may better serve their communities and organzations back home. The IIC was honored to welcome these guests from so many different countries, and to share with them our history, development, and the various programs that we offer.
Visitors were eager to learn about the Korean community, and asked many about IIC's operations, online education, and ESL (English as a Second Language) programs.
The visitor from Peru asked about how IIC helps non-citizens acculturate into American society. Dr. Chey and Eileen Tompkins responded that IIC coordinates with International, Federal, State and Local groups to help legal immigrants get information and resources.
Another visitor asked if we help illegal immigrants. Dr. Chey answered that the IIC must comply and work with the law, and that legal means are the best way to work with immigrants.
Most visitors worked on behalf of their communities to advance human rights, democracy, employment, and to improve services for citizens. The visitor from Egypt introduced himself as someone who worked to advance human rights for women in his country.
