Newcomers Connect

Get the information and support you need to build a new life in Boston, and find a safe space to practice speaking English, by attending our weekly gatherings, joining our Facebook community, following our Instagram account and attending the weekly drop-in newcomer office hour, hosted by the MIT Spouses & Partners Connect staff.

Social Connect

Meet new people, explore Boston and have fun at our social events. From our weekly gatherings on campus to evening social events and trips around town, our menu of opportunities offers something for everyone - individuals, couples and families.

Parents Connect

Peer-led groups for parents-to-be, new parents, and parents of toddlers help you get information and find a community of support as you begin your parenthood journey.

Most of MIT Spouses & Partners Connect’s events and activities are kid-friendly, including free optional childcare at our weekly gatherings.

Career Connect

Our workshop series, drop-in hour and LinkedIn group will help you with your job search in the US, by helping you develop your skills and connect with other job seekers. We've also made a series of videos about key aspects of finding work in the US. We also offer a Professional Development Fund to support our members' career growth.
