The Catalan Institute of America is a non-profit membership organization working to celebrate Catalan culture, language, and heritage in New York City and beyond. Since its inception, the Catalan Institute of America has been a meeting point for everyone who has an interest in Catalan language and culture in the United States and has been instrumental in creating a visible Catalan presence in the New York area.

The Catalan Institute of America works hard to foster a sense of community among Catalan-Americans and Catalan expatriates, provides guidance for newly arrived Catalans in the United States, and is proud to sponsor regular Catalan language courses.
