I-Squared is the young friends network of the International Institute of St. Louis (IISTL). Their mission is to raise awareness of the agency, its services and volunteer opportunities, among young St. Louisans. The IISTL helps refugees and immigrants to independence by teaching English, finding jobs, and providing adjustment services to overcome language and cultural barriers.
I-Squared has several on-going activities. Their dinner club meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month to experience cuisines and cultures from around the world, learn about the families of the IISTL and serve by making a small donation to help welcome new Americans to St. Louis. There is also a book club and happy hours as well as community service work with IISTL as needed.
They are looking for St. Louisans in there 20s, 30s and 40s to get involved. To do just that, check out their website at http://www.iistl.org/young_friends_network.php
