The CIC is an organisation helping immigrants to integrate into Czech society.

 
 
The Centre for Integration of Foreigners (CIC) civil association was founded in June 2003. It is mainly focused on foreigners who have decided to stay in the Czech Republic in the long term. Their main motto is, “We help immigrants to become our fellow citizens”. Foreigners have the opportunity to get free social counselling and employment advice or subscribe for low-threshold Czech language classes. The CIC also offers its X2 information services in the area of health, work and family X2, which provides useful and practical advice. Within the integration programme called “Volunteer as the guide of asylum seekers and foreigners with permanent stay in the CR”, it is possible to apply for a “personal” volunteer who will help newcomers explore their surroundings, Czech habits and culture, or can help with learning Czech and getting around in everyday life situations.

Today, the Centre for Integration of Foreigners is available throughout Bohemia and the Vysočina Region. The counselling centres are located in Prague (map), Kolín (map) and now also in Kutná Hora (map).
