Today, more than ever, Colorado’s refugee and immigrant community needs to know they are welcome.  We’re on a mission to help train refugees and give them their first jobs, empowering them to contribute to their communities and changing the way they live, learn and work.

Our Goal: We aim to raise $15,000 by 3/31/17 to employ a trainer for the Spring Café. The Spring Café and Learning Center is a coffee shop with a conscience! We employ refugees and provide training programs designed to prepare them for jobs in the customer service industry. The Spring Café was founded by Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning, a non-profit serving Denver's immigrant and refugee community. 

About Us:  Since 1979, Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning has been welcoming, educating and integrating new Americans from around the globe for more than 30 years. We are a nonprofit, community-based organization working to build brighter futures for individuals and foster more inclusive organizations. Our mission is to “Empower people and organizations to succeed across languages and cultures.” We employ refugees and provide training programs designed to prepare them for jobs in the customer service and healthcare industries. We are also a nationally recognized provider of effective intercultural learning programs and services.

Your Donation: 
Your tax-deductible gift to Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning will help us continue to provide the education, integration services and advocacy needed to support and transform the lives of so many Colorado refugees and immigrants, empowering them to contribute to their communities and forever changing the way they live, learn and work.
