The Intercultural Community Center
ICC seeks to empower immigrant families in their journey to becoming self-sufficient, productive and resilient citizens. All of our programs are no-cost, culturally inclusive, and built towards fully integrating new-Mainers into our community. By forging partnerships with other community-based organizations, government agencies, and local nonprofits, ICC fosters new connections and ensures long-term sustainability.
The Intercultural Community Center was founded in the spring of 2014 by immigrant leaders from the Portland and Westbrook communities. In June of 2014, the center launched its flagship program: the Power School Afterschool and Summer Program, designed to support the success of local immigrant, refugee and first-generation students in grades 3-8. In 2019, Power School was awarded the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant, greatly expanding the opportunities we provide to our students. At the same time, ICC expanded its Adult Program to connect New Mainers with educational, professional, and health resources. Specific resources include: ELL certified instructors, career readiness, financial literacy, computer courses, healthcare assistance, and case management. Since its founding, ICC continues to advocate for the needs of our immigrant and refugee community within Cumberland and York Counties.
