Founded in 1998 as a program of AFSC, the Pan Valley Institute (PVI) is a popular education center located in Fresno, the heart of California’s San Joaquin Valley. The Valley is home to large immigrant and refugee populations that struggle with experiences of social isolation, economic inequality, marginalization and cultural discrimination. Our mission is to accompany and support them in their efforts to build a productive and enriching place for themselves in their new home. We create welcoming spaces where immigrants can gather to dialogue and learn from one another and rebuild their world.
