If you’re passionate about assisting immigrants pursue their educational, economic and civic aspirations, please consider volunteering with English for New Bostonians. Learning English is the first step toward achieving these goals.
We offer several volunteer opportunities:
- Tutor students in ESOL classes on an ongoing basis.
We train volunteers for the Allies for Immigrants: ESOL Corps, which we run in partnership withBoston Cares. Volunteers support a classroom teacher, facilitate a small group in an integrated ESOL/technology skills course, lead a conversation group or citizenship class, tutor a student one-on-one, or coordinate Allies for Immigrants tutors at a program. No prior experience in ESOL teaching or tutoring is necessary. Allies for Immigrants: ESOL Corps volunteers assist at numerous Boston-area. This opportunity requires a commitment to volunteer weekly or twice a month, depending on program needs. This initiative is made possible with support from Cummings Foundation.
- Conduct mock interviews to prepare participants for job interviews.
We arrange mock interview events throughout the year for immigrants interested in practicing their job interview skills. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for people who want to help but cannot commit to a twice-monthly volunteering schedule. We are looking for professionals in many different career areas and are especially interested in those who have experience in human resources or hiring. These mock interview events ensure that immigrants are better prepared for their job search and increases their likelihood of success. We occasionally have additional opportunities to get involved with skills trainings, job fairs, or other career-related events.
- Support our events.
English for New Bostonians holds events throughout the year and frequently need volunteers to help support them in roles such as on-site registration, set-up and breakdown, and other logistics.
