AmeriCorps New American Integration Program (NAIP)

The MIRA Coalition, The Massachusetts Office for Refugees and Immigrants, and English for New Bostonians partnered in 2011 to form the Massachusetts AmeriCorps New American Integration Program (NAIP). 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. Members commit to a full-time, full or half year service position while receiving a modest living allowance, health benefits, training, and an educational award at completion of service.

NAIP AmeriCorps Members assist immigrants and refugees gain economic stability and more fully participate in our society through learning English, applying for citizenship, job readiness training, and accessing community services. Through high quality training and experience, NAIP AmeriCorps members, many of whom are from immigrant and refugee communities themselves, become skilled and passionate service providers, educators, interpreters, and leaders.

New American Integration Program will begin accepting applications in early April for candidates interested in serving September 2017 - July 2018.
