International Club Rio de Janeiro

The International Club Rio de Janeiro is a non profit organization open to all nationalities, providing help and guidance for newcomers as well as organizing charity events, fund raisers, speakers events, and several clubs (Book club, cooking...)

Membership in the International Club of Rio de Janeiro (InC) is open to English-speaking residents of Rio of all nationalities. A non-profit organization, we offer a wide range of activities to all members. The purpose of the International Club is to:

1 - Provide guidance to English-speaking newcomers and/or residents in the State of Rio de Janeiro.

2 - Provide philanthropic activities and services to the community.

3 - Unite the members of Rio’s English-speaking community and to promote social relationship among them. ? For more information or to join the InC, please visit our page on

Some of the benefits of membership include participation at regular monthly general meetings featuring guest speakers, as well as the more informal monthly “cafézinho” meetings and happy hours, in both Zona Sul and Barra. In addition to monthly excursions to local museums or tourist sites, we regularly invite members to weekend events, ranging from gourmet dinners to boat trips in Angra. Members can view real-time informaton about events as well as our other members on our new interactive Meetup site.

The InC is proud to sponsor various charity activities, both financially and with volunteers. Our Speakeasy program teaching English to children and teens in several Rio favelas is especially noteworthy. Various sub-groups of the InC engage in other activities, such as a book discussion group and a cooking club. All events are free to members, with the exception of those earmarked for our charity projects, such as our popular wine and cheese tastings and Xmas Tree Lighting Party.

By participating in the InC and contributing your ideas, you can meet friends from all over the world and make your life in Rio just a little easier and more fun. We look forward to you joining us!
