The Massachusetts AmeriCorps New American Integration Program (NAIP) is an opportunity to serve immigrants and refugees while building and utilizing your professional skills. NAIP is accepting applications from individuals wanting to serve as fulltime AmeriCorps member from March 2017 to August 31, 2017. The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition and English for New Bostonians (ENB) are partnered to place 30 AmeriCorps members at immigrant and refugee serving organizations throughout Massachusetts. A NAIP AmeriCorps member commits to a full-time, six-month service position while receiving a modest living allowance, health benefits, and training.
As an AmeriCorps NAIP member you will assist immigrants and refugees in their efforts to gain economic stability and fully integrate by improving their English skills, becoming US citizens, improving job skills, and connecting with community resources. Additionally, you will become a member of a capable AmeriCorps NAIP volunteers Corps, many of whom are from the immigrant and refugee community. Through high quality training and experience, NAIP AmeriCorps members will become skilled and passionate service providers, educators, interpreters and advocates. Lastly, by spearheading volunteer programs at each site, you will create a highly visible volunteer “brigade” to engage community volunteers on a large scale to address urgent educational and social needs.
Applications to become a NAIP AmeriCorps member will be reviewed on a rolling basis upon submission.
The priority deadline is January 31, 2017.
