International Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA)

Develop a Marketing & Communications Plan

The International Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) welcomes, educates and serves immigrants, refugees, and their families as they join and contribute to the community.  Originally founded in 1918, and expanded in 2007 as the result of a successful merger of the International Institutes of San Francisco and the East Bay, IIBA continues the 94 year legacy of its parent organizations, with offices in San Francisco, Redwood City, Oakland, and a newly opened office in Antioch. Over 10,000 people walk through their doors every year to seek some information or assistance Current programs include legal services for immigration and naturalization, English and civics classes, community outreach, and health education and interpretation.

With operations merged, IIBA needs helping communicating with one voice to deliver their community education and outreach message that they provide a high quality, affordable service with a commitment to the Bay Area community.

For more information, see IIBA website:
