Volunteer at MIRA
From voter registration drives and citizenship clinics to mass mailings and Immigrants Day at the State House, MIRA has many chances for one-day or event-specific volunteering. See below for current volunteer opportunities.
Help Immigrants Become US Citizens!
MIRA’s Citizenship Clinics are hosted throughout the state of Massachusetts, with a larger concentration of clinics in the Greater Metro Boston Area. Clinics are typically hosted on Saturdays. At clinics, volunteers are usually needed for 6+ hours, typically from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm.
Clinic volunteers help with registering clients, filling out U.S. Citizenship applications, and copying needed paperwork. Personalized trainings are mandatory for volunteers interested in helping directly with filling out U.S. Citizenship Applications. Brief trainings for all other volunteer stations are offered on the day of the clinic.

Register New Citizens to Vote!
MIRA’s Voter Registrations happen directly after naturalization ceremonies throughout the state of Massachusetts, often at Faneuil Hall or other landmarks in the Greater Boston Area. They are typicallyafternoons, and volunteers are usually needed for about an hour ( ).
Volunteers fill out voter registration forms for newly sworn-in citizens, empowering them with the first rite of passage to becoming an active and engaged citizen. Registering new voters is fun and easy, and all materials—clipboards, forms, and pins—are provided. Volunteers are also encouraged to help with the data entry into the electronic Voter Activation Network that follows, putting new voters into the statewide database.
