Bilingual Community Health Outreach Worker Training Program

Applicants must be Boston residents

Looking for speakers of Mandarin/Cantonese, Arabic, Somali, Cape Verde Creole, or Vietnamese

The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition is excited to announce the launch of a new job and workforce training program, in partnership with the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) and with support from the Neighborhood Jobs Trust. The six-month program will train and employ up to eight bilingual Community Health Outreach Workers to assist BPHC with public health outreach and education in Boston’s immigrant and minority neighborhoods during the COVID-19 pandemic. Program participants will also receive career advising, education guidance, and job search support from the MIRA Coalition program coordinator.

Outreach Workers will conduct outreach (both remote and in-person) to develop and maintain engagement between the City and communities. This position is a key team member who strengthens and supports communities experiencing a high number of individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 and facing disparities in access to public and preventative health services. The program also offers an opportunity for hands-on training and work experience leading to long-term employment opportunities in the public health field.

The program will run for six months and includes 20/hours per week of either training or work in the field. Trainees will receive a stipend of $20/hour while they participate in the program. To apply, please email a copy of your resume to Sue Parsons, Program Coordinator, MIRA Coalition, sparsons@miracoalition.org, and complete our online application form here: http://bit.ly/outreach-worker.
