Through ENB’s Immigrant Resilience and Recovery Initiative (IERRI), a cadre of three multi-lingual career coaches – all recent ENB graduates – foster quality employment and small business opportunities for students who attend our
seven most grassroots community programs across the City.
Career coaches work one-on-one with individuals at the following locations to prepare and apply for employment:

East Boston Community Council (EBCC), East Boston
Educational Development Group (EDG), Roxbury
Gardner Pilot Academy (ESOL) Adult Education Program, Allston
Gilbert Albert Community Center (GACC), Dorchester
Maverick Landing Community Services (MLCS),  East Boston
Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH), East Boston
St. Mark Community Education Program, Dorchester

The coaches simultaneously cultivate relationships with quality employers interested in providing advancement opportunities for talented hires. The ENB coaching model is tailored to immigrants with diverse English levels, educational and work backgrounds, and career aspirations.

This state-funded program builds out capacity to assist immigrants in increasing their English skills and securing a stable economic pathway. Programs customized to employment for sectors with staff shortages, and entrepreneurship, offer not only routes out of poverty, but a key strategy to fuel just, equitable economic recovery.
