The Rohingya Cultural Center is a community based social service organization aimed at serving the needs of the Rohingya refugee population in Chicago as well as raising awareness of the persecution of the Rohingya in Myanmar.

The Rohingya

The United Nations lists the Rohingya Muslims of northwestern Burma (Myanmar) among the most persecuted people in the world.

Social Services

RCC provides a variety of social services ranging from ESL classes to citizenship assistance.


Approximately 1,000 Rohingya refugees have been resettled in Chicago, and RCC serves as the social hub for the community, providing a space for weddings, dinners, and other social events.


Rohingya families lead the facilitation of multiple programs, including courses in English (ESL), career workshops, after-school tutoring, and more. The center offers Chicago’s growing refugee community an opportunity to participate in community-building projects as they begin to establish their lives and become part of the American fabric.
