About Friendship Community Project

Friendship Community Project is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit, founded in 2015, dedicated to teaching English language and life skills to Iowa City area  adult immigrants and refugees. We strive to promote a sense of community belonging and practical assistance in accessing local resources and learning about our community and to serve as an anchor for those new to the community and culture who have not yet formed local ties. Extra curricular activities include  a help desk, conversation groups, Friendship Pals, and basic computer skills tutoring, .
