People thrive when they are able to communicate. Intercambio® offers affordable English classes to adults in convenient locations in their neighborhoods at flexible times for working families.  We use the power of language learning to help individuals develop new skills and perspectives in a welcoming, encouraging environment that sparks courage, growth and excitement.

“An individual’s inability to communicate in the common language can hamper access to employment, transportation, medical and social services, voting, and children’s participation in schooling.” — U.S. Census Bureau study

Boulder County residents speak English less than “very well.”

How We Integrate Communities

For our volunteers, it’s being able to engage in a meaningful way with immigrants living nearby. For our students, it’s practical English language skills to connect with their local community. To make it easier for immigrants to navigate new and complex laws, norms and systems, Intercambio’s English and cultural integration classes focus on practical information related to:

  • employment
  • public school system
  • health care
  • social services
  • transportation
  • commerce

Intercambio’s purpose is to ignite human potential by cultivating a world where people from different cultural backgrounds connect, communicate and engage.
