What can I do?  
As a volunteer, you will be trained on how to use the platform to author the web pages with Chinatown businesses. Volunteers will build a relationship with local businesses and be trained to assist businesses in claiming their Yelp or Google Business accounts using the information gathered from creating the How To Chinatown web page

  1. Support and engage with three to five local businesses*
  2. Attend one (in-person) training workshop** on narrative content collection with the HowToChinatown.NYC web tool.
