Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 22 people are interested

The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition is looking for enthusiastic volunteers for our bi-monthly citizenship clinics. The citizenship process can be complicated and confusing. We make the process an easier one by offering support and free assistance to legal permanent residents who are eager to become US citizens.

As a volunteer you will work one-on-one with individuals to guide them through the citizenship application along with the support of MIRA staff. You will receive training, a breakfast and lunch!

This is a great opportunity for people interested in learning more about the immigration process, connecting with the immigrant population in Boston, or getting to know a well-established Boston non-profit.

Feel free to visit our website at: www.miracoalition.org
