Social, economic and civic integration into a new community can be challenging to anyone, but immigrants and refugees often face the biggest barriers. The New American Integration Program believes that refugees and immigrants are among the Commonwealth’s greatest assets and have a right to thrive and feel at home away from home in Massachusetts, without barriers to their success.
To help knock down the most immediate hurdles, NAIP trains and places AmeriCorps members to provide English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instruction, job readiness training, and citizenship services at community-based organizations across Massachusetts. Learn more about our current members and where they’re serving.
From September – July every year, up to 35 NAIP members gain extensive training and experience to become skilled and passionate service providers, educators, interpreters and leaders as they carry out eleven months of full-time service at their host sites. Learn more about 2021-2022 NAIP host sites.
NAIP members learn, serve and grow together while also receiving a modest living allowance, professional development, health + childcare benefits, and an educational award upon completion of service. Learn more about the requirements, benefits, and how to apply to serve in the 2022-2023 cohort.
