We currently have two programs that we are recruiting volunteers for, the Allies for Immigrants ESOL Corps and Mock Interviewing Events.
1) Allies for Immigrants ESOL Corps is geared towards getting volunteers into ESOL classrooms to help tutor, lead conversation groups, help with writing, aid the teachers, and other activities. No prior experience in ESOL teaching or tutoring is necessary, but it is definitely a plus! We currently have 5 locations interested in volunteers: St. Mark Community Education Program, Project Hope, Gilbert Albert Community Center, NOAH, and Maverick Landing Community Services. This program is in partnership with Boston Cares and made possible by the Cummings Foundation.
2) 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 will 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.
