If you’re passionate about helping immigrants to learn English, please consider volunteering with ENB. Volunteer opportunities include:
- Tutoring students in ESOL classes on an ongoing basis – Allies for Immigrants ESOL Corps volunteers tutor students, lead conversation groups, help with writing, aid ESOL teachers, and other activities. No prior experience in ESOL teaching or tutoring is necessary. We currently have 5 locations interested in volunteers: St. Mark Community Education Program in Dorchester, Project Hope in Dorchester, Gilbert Albert Community Center in Dorchester, NOAH in East Boston, and Maverick Landing Community Services in East Boston. We are looking for a twice monthly commitment for volunteering with this program. This program is in partnership with Boston Cares and is made possible by the Cummings Foundation.
- Acting as an interviewer at a mock job interview event – Mock Interview events happen throughout the year and are perfect for people who want to get involved but cannot commit to a weekly volunteering schedule. We are looking for professionals in many different career areas and are especially interested in those who have experience in HR or hiring. These mock interview events help immigrants prepare for interviews and help them succeed in finding better jobs. Additionally, there may be more opportunities to get involved with skills trainings, job fairs, or other career related events.
- Being a one-time event volunteer – ENB has a few opportunities during the year to help in supporting an event.
