Overview:

The Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement (MOIA) was created in 1998 as the Mayor’s Office of New Bostonians. Our mission is to strengthen the ability of immigrants and Boston’s diverse cultural and linguistic communities to fully participate in the economic, civic, social, and cultural life of our great City. We also work to promote the recognition and public understanding of immigrant contributions to Boston.

 

We are seeking an energetic, creative and committed intern, age 18 and older, to join our team this summer. This is a great opportunity for anyone who is passionate about equity and raising awareness on critical city and community resources to support our immigrant communities. MOIA is active on social media (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram), maintains a website (boston.gov/immigrants), and issues a weekly e-newsletter. This intern will work with our Communications Manager on various projects and learn about communications work within city government. 

 

The Communications intern will report directly to the Executive Director. Bilingual/Bicultural individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.

  • Write posts for social media and our weekly e-newsletter.
  • Support communications with immigrant-serving media outlets in Boston.
  • Support strategic communications strategy for MOIA’s initiatives.
  • Assist in the updating and maintenance of MOIA’s website.
  • Design clear engaging graphic communications for digital and print.
  • Creating branded promotional materials, posters, flyers, website, social media posts, and other marketing materials as needed.
