Project PROTECH Volunteer Recruitment Form
PROTECH: Pandemic Rapid-response Optimization To Enhance Community-Resilience and Health is a rapid response community-based action project supported by the Government of Canada’s New Frontiers In Research Fund (NFRF). This project is led by Prof. Josephine P. Wong and Prof. Mandana Vahabi (Ryerson University); Dr. Alan Li (Regent Park Community Health Centre); and Dr. Kenneth P. Fung (University Health Network).

The aim of PROTECH is to mitigate the negative impacts of COVID-19 on the Chinese Canadian communities and affected service providers in the Greater Toronto Area. PROTECH consists of multiple inter-related components, including an online resource hub that provides accurate timely information on COVID-19 and practical ways to cope with social, economic and psychological challenges. This online resource hub also offers Live-Chat in Cantonese, English, and Mandarin to address queries currently not covered by the info-lines provided by government and non-profit organizations.
In addition to on-going recruitment for Live Chat Support, we are also seeking volunteers in the following areas:

(1) Information Hub: review and curate existing resources/information; translate needed information to Chinese; and develop new information as needed.

(2) Technical Support: develop and maintain PROTECH website, live chat, online learning management systems, and other technical functions of the project.

(3) Human Resource/Volunteer Support: recruit, train, deploy and support volunteers in different project roles and activities, including website, live chat, community mobilization and public education.

(4) Community Engagement: organize community outreach, education, and assessment of community needs; coordinate and advocate for needed services and resources.
