Mission Statement

Intercambio exists to bring English learners and community volunteers together in language classes and gatherings to build skills, confidence, and life-changing connections.

We do this by creating programs, trainings, and curriculum where all participants learn from each other's experiences and perspectives. We do these in-person and online, locally and nationally.

Organization History

In 2000, Intercambio de Comunidades was founded to help Spanish-speaking immigrants in Boulder County learn English and improve their families' quality of life. In 2005, Intercambio broadened to focus on all immigrant communities. In 2011, we changed our name to Intercambio Uniting Communities to better reflect our diverse student population.
Intercambio has provided affordable, in-home and group English language classes and Cultural Skills education to more than 10,000 adult immigrants in Boulder County. We have trained and supported more than 5,000 local volunteer teachers, who are integral to our ability to provide high quality services at low cost. Our monthly intercultural events bring together thousands of diverse individuals each year to bridge cultural divides and build social capital.

Testimonials

"Intercambio's focus on cross-cultural exchange through language education serves as an inspiring example for other communities as they work toward better cross -cultural understanding." - Ken Salazar, Former Secretary of the Interior

"Knowing English opened a lot of doors for me, not just with my daughter but in the school. I feel more confident talking with the parents, talking with the principal, with everybody. It feels so good to talk to anyone." - Roxana Cordova, Former Intercambio Student

"It's just so gratifying to see someone move up at work, or go somewhere they were afraid to go before, all because of improved English confidence," - Carol Dwyer, Intercambio Volunteer Teacher
