3 MA Sources for English Language Istruction

The MA Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA) and English for New Bostonians (ENB) are embarking on an exciting new initiative, the MA AmeriCorps New American Integration Program, in partnership with the Massachusetts Office for Refugees and Immigrants (ORI) to match 30 AmeriCorps Members with community-based refugee- and immigrant-serving organizations in three Massachusetts cities—Lynn, New Bedford and Boston.

Members will support and deliver English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instruction, and Civic Education and Citizenship Assistance, and work to connect immigrants and refugees with community resources. They also will work with host site staff to enhance volunteer recruitment capacity to develop ongoing expanded services.
Seeking a part-time Program Coordinator who will oversee project start-up activities, Member training and 15 community placements at AmeriCorps host sites; and work closely with NAIP staff at ORI, MIRA’s Organizing team, and ENB staff to meet the goals and objectives of the position. Applications are requested no later than September 16, and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
