Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice is currently hiring for the part-time Chinese Seniors Hub Coordinator position.
The Chinese Seniors Hub Coordinator runs an outreach and recreational program to build new and existing leadership and networks in the Chinatown, Downtown Eastside, Strathcona, and Oppenheimer communities. The Coordinator offers basic social services to Chinese-speaking seniors such as letter reading and regular weekly check-ins, as well as empowering seniors to become leaders in their buildings and communities.
The Chinese Seniors Hub was formed to prevent and decrease senior isolation, encourage seniors to check-in on each other and advocate for themselves, and promote healthier lifestyles and communities. The Coordinator will work closely with Yarrow’s Outreach Team to ensure that housing, health, and income requests are addressed, and will also connect with similar neighbourhood organizations for referrals and collaborations. The position includes grassroots organizing and outreach, and is a mix of remote work and in-person programming.
