Apply to AmeriCorps
The New American Integration Program (NAIP) was established in 2011 through a partnership between MIRA, English for New Bostoniansand the Massachusetts Office for Refugees and Immigrants (no longer a partner).
Up to 30 AmeriCorps members serve nearly 5,000 immigrants and refugees from over 106 different countries every year. Members are placed at immigrant- and refugee-serving organizations across the Commonwealth, serving residents of Greater Boston, Lynn, MetroWest, Central Massachusetts, New Bedford, and the Merrimack Valley.
MIRA and English for New Bostonians are partnered to place 30 AmeriCorps members at immigrant- and refugee-serving organizations throughout Massachusetts. A NAIP AmeriCorps member commits to a full-time, 11-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 developing their professional skills, improving their English language skills, becoming U.S. citizens, 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.
