A place to belong

The Korean Institute of Minnesota has been a cultural and educational resource for Korean-American immigrants and Korean adoptees and their families since it was established in 1975. In particular, it is a great place for adopted Korean children to establish connections with their heritage and community, and build a healthy self-image and identity.

The Korean Institute of Minnesota is a unique and valued organization. The symbiotic relationship between the Korean adopted community and the Korean American community has been nurtured and sustained. The common bond for these two communities is their investment in their youth and wish for Korean cultural heritage to be passed on and shared. It is also a place for adoptive families to expand their relationships with one another.
