About the Allies for Immigrants: ESOL Corps
Allies volunteers are a part of a network of volunteers who share a passion for enhancing English skills for adult learners. Corps volunteers deepen their community engagement by committing to serve a minimum of twice a month through the Corps and attending skill building opportunities throughout the program year. All ESOL (Classroom & Conversation) Corps Volunteers will need to complete and pass a CORI Background check. 

Volunteers serve at Allies for Immigrants ESOL programs in the following ways:

Support an ESOL classroom teacher two or more times a month

Serve as a site lead and coordinate Allies for Immigrant volunteer tutors

Become a lead citizenship class instructor or conversation group leader

Facilitate a small group of students one day a week in an integrated ESOL/technology skills course

During the Training:

- Volunteers will receive an overview of the Allies for Immigrants ESOL Corps

- Volunteers will learn about the 9 ESOL program sites across the city, and become familiarized with their selected site

- Refreshments will be served at the beginning of the training and conversation

-Volunteers who are new to Boston Cares will participate in a New Volunteer Orientation at 5:30PM; Current Boston Cares Volunteers arrive at 6:00PM

We are excited to welcome you to the Allies for Immigrants program!
