$15 per hour

Description

In March 2020, thousands of students suddenly found themselves in financial, academic, and personal crisis. In response, The Student Navigator Network was launched to provide one-on-one resource referrals to help students apply for emergency financial assistance, find local support, and navigate public benefits via personal email, group “office hours,” webinars, and individual consultation.


In December 2020, Swipe Out Hunger will launch a NYC Student Navigator Network to support CUNY students who are facing basic needs insecurity during the pandemic. Navigators will connect their peers with HRA benefits like SNAP and Cash Assistance, and share timely information on other community programs, campus services, and relevant policies (e.g. the recent expansion of SNAP eligibility in NY).


Navigators will earn $15 per hour and work 15 hours per week maximum from January through March, with paid training starting in December and a possibility of extending until May. Schedules will be arranged to accommodate classes and other responsibilities and all work will be conducted remotely.


Requirements

This opportunity is available to current CUNY undergraduate and graduate students only. Applicants should be excellent communicators, and have experience doing one or more of the following:

– Experience leading or volunteering with a basic needs (food, housing, health etc.) program

– Collaboration with diverse student groups or organizations, on or off-campus

– Peer advising, counseling, or case management

– Leading workshops or groups, or teaching

– Advocacy experience


Navigators will receive ongoing virtual training and support by the Navigator Manager as well as Swipe Out Hunger’s Vice President of Programs Marissa S Nachman and Advocacy and Organizing Manager Robb Friedlander. Navigators may also have the opportunity to collaborate on training and resource-sharing with Healthy CUNY’s Food Security Advocates and Rise’s Student Navigator Network.
