About

Please join English At Large on Thursday, September 15, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM for wine, snacks, and an informal information session about our Young Professionals Council. This is a great opportunity to volunteer with a group of rising professionals, grow your leadership skills, and make a difference in your community.

The core mission of English At Large is to provide adult immigrants with the language fluency, cultural knowledge, and career readiness skills they need to fully participate in their communities. To accomplish this mission we offer innovative one-on-one and small group instruction to adult immigrants seeking English language instruction. In addition, this year we are excited to institute our Career Access Lab ("CAL"), which provides interactive resume building sessions, mock interviews, and networking tips. English At Large is a small organization with an enormous impact on individuals within the communities we serve and we need all the help we can get to expand our ability to meet demand for our services.

Benefits:

  • Networking with other civic minded young professionals in the underserved Greater Boston area.
  • Take on potential leadership opportunities in event planning, fundraising, marketing and advisory committees.
  • Volunteer opportunities to give guidance to immigrants who are also starting (or restarting) their careers.

Responsibilities:

  • Assist with event planning and fundraising events.
  • Perform an advisory role to the Board of Directors or various committees on programs or events.
