People of the World


“I was involved in the International House programs 20 years ago, when I first moved to the United States. You helped me with my work permit, you helped me learn English. I own my own business now, and I see you every month at Common Market. I’m so glad to see that International House is still here supporting the community.”


On the 3rd Wednesday each month, we sponsor an international meet-n-greet at The People's Market located at 1609 Elizabeth Avenue in Elizabeth (previously the Common Market in Plaza Midwood before we moved) called the People of the World series.

We feature a different cultural group living right here in Charlotte, every month.

This event offers a chance for community members to learn about IH and the work we do, while also learning about a new culture.

You'll get to meet IH staff members, interns, volunteers, and other foreign-rooted or foreign-minded individuals.

Please join us - you'll probably make some new friends!
