Recruiting Organization: Migrant Alliance and Partnership Network

The Migrant Alliance and Partnership Network (MAP Network) is looking for folks excited about strengthening migrant services to join our Leadership Team. We aim to strengthen and connect immigrant and refugee services in the greater Boston area by acting as a networking platform and information hub. Our Leadership Team consists of passionate volunteers with various backgrounds including research and academia, community organizing and activism, and direct service work, and we are united by a commitment to the values embodied in our mission.

Leadership Team members oversee and develop the organization’s work in a particular area such as communications and social media, community engagement and outreach, research, and resource development. This is a great opportunity to develop skills, be part of a dynamic team, and contribute to a meaningful mission.

Qualifications:

  • Enthusiasm about the mission of MAP Network and supporting immigrant and refugee communities and service providers
  • Collaborative working style and interpersonal communication skills
  • Self-motivation and accountability
  • Some experience with the area you are hoping to contribute to (e.g., social media, community engagement, research, fundraising, organizational development, etc.)
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to effectively communicate with people in a variety of roles (community members, students, volunteers, nonprofit directors, government representatives, etc.)
  • Any combination of formal training/education and experience that demonstrates the ability to meaningfully contribute to the team
  • A basic understanding of migrant communities and migration issues in the Boston area

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Attend monthly Leadership Team meetings at our office on the UMass Boston campus if local (meetings are held virtually for the time being)
  • Mentor and supervise an intern (typically begins after the first semester)
  • Specific duties and responsibilities depend on the area of work a Leadership Team member is interested in contributing to but may include: creating content and processes for social media, developing newsletters, overseeing outreach to service providing organizations, developing programming for our monthly network calls, conducting research on a particular topic, developing research reports, creating resources to address particular needs, compiling data and information, planning events, developing and overseeing fundraising efforts, and more.

Please note that this is a part-time and unpaid volunteer position. This is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students and young professionals looking to gain experience in the nonprofit sector or established professionals looking to contribute to meaningful, mission-driven work. As a member of the Leadership Team, you will be asked to commit to at least a six month term (ideally one year) overseeing a specific area of work. This position requires a 5-10 hr/week time commitment. Ideal candidates are Massachusetts-based professionals, but remote applicants will be considered.

We acknowledge that people from certain communities and backgrounds might be hesitant to apply to jobs and volunteer opportunities without meeting 100% of the qualifications. If you are excited about our mission and think you have something to contribute, we would love to hear from you and encourage you to apply.

This position is open to remote work. To apply, please send your cover letter and resume to info@bostonmapnetwork.org
