Institute for Sustainable Communities

Founded in 1991, ISC is an independent non-profit organization that gives passionate, committed people the tools, skills, and resources they need to make their communities better places to live.  With our headquarters in Montpelier, Vermont, and offices in China, Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, and Washington, DC, ISC has an international staff of approximately 80 people.  Our approach ensures that solutions emerge from within the community, rather than being imposed from the outside.  By combining technical expertise and leadership training with strategic investments in local organizations, we spark creative solutions and lasting change.  We have managed more than 70 projects in 18 countries.  For more information on ISC, please visit our website at
