To unite and create awareness of Indian culture and values in the local community by providing social and cultural community programs

Concept of ICC: The India Community Center was conceived as a place where every generation of the Indian Diaspora could find comfort in various facets of their culture, preserve and practice unique traditions and celebrate festivals and social milestones in a welcoming environment. It was also designed to be a center where people of other cultures can explore and experience Indian traditions and values. In addition to cherishing heritage, the ICC founders also decided that promoting brotherhood and fraternity in the spirit of the constitution would be even more important in a distant land. So uniting the diverse community also becomes one of ICC’s goals. And finally, incorporating community service as an essential pillar of this center was considered vital to living up to traditional Indian values. Thus came into being our mission of UNITE. SERVE. CELEBRATE

We need your support

As we step in 2015, the first challenge we face is to provide our preschool with maximum resources to reach its full potential in shaping our kids for a better future. The ICC preschool is a culturally stimulating space that facilitates social, emotional, physical and cognitive development in kids.

At ICC, we take pride in our heritage and we want our kids to explore our heritage through experiential activities in every day life. We aim to provide a progressive environment designed to help our kids explore our Indian identity and Indian traditions. With your support and contribution, you can help us build a bridge between our ethnic values and everyday learning at school.

Preschool goals- next 3 to 5 years

- Start a transitional Kindergarten classroom for our 4+ students
