About the Project
HowToChinatown.NYC's goal is to build an online platform to support Chinatown by working with local businesses to build an web presence, while providing an alternative to sites like Google and Yelp.
The beautiful stories of Chinatown you help to create will be hosted on HowToChinatown.NYC website, which will feature a map-based narrative about Chinatown.
As a volunteer contributor, you will be trained on how to use our platform. You will build relationships with local businesses and help them build an online presence. Volunteers with Cantonese or Mandarin language skills are especially needed.
- Engage with 3-5 businesses (at your own pace)
- Attend one training workshop for the HowToChinatown.NYC platform
- Produce stories about 3-5 businesses for HowToChinatown.NYC (we'll provide support at the story workshops)
