The International Institute of New Castle (Pennsylvania) was established in 1923. From 1923-1933, it was housed in rental quarters in an area of heavy immigrant concentration. A financial crisis then forced it to move nto the central YWCA building. The Institute continued to operate until ca. 1950, when it was merged with the Adult Program Department. Until the late 1950s, a few of the Institute's clubs, such as the Italian Mothers Club and the Polish Mothers Club, remained in existence.
