IMPRINT: Immigrant Professional Integration
This interactive map showcases over 100 programs and services around the country that are designed to help immigrant and refugee professionals achieve success in the United States. These programs and services focus on career preparation, ESL for high-skilled immigrants, and licensing and credentialing guidance, and are hosted by service providers, advocacy and public education institutions, and technical assistance and resource providers. The map also features a data tool that displays demographic data on college-educated immigrants.
IMPRINT has an ongoing social media campaign called #RoadMapTo100 where we highlight and celebrate the 100+ programs on this map. You can follow along via this pinned thread on our Twitter page.
This map showcases current efforts targeting immigrant and refugee professionals in the U.S. The programs are self-reported and not necessarily endorsed by IMPRINT.
This first of its kind interactive map serves as a catalyst for economic equity and empowerment. It aims to connect, educate, and inspire service providers, technical assistance providers, researchers, policymakers, advocates, and funders to close the opportunity gap and engage in local efforts to help college-educated immigrants transition into careers that match their skills and experience.
Currently, there are upwards of 100 programs or services in the United States that met strict mapping criteria. There may be other initiatives that are currently not featured. For this reason, it is our hope that the map will lift existing resources out of the shadows and also serve as a springboard for the development of new initiatives.
