NYU Langone Food Access Navigators - Spanish or Mandarin
The mission of NYU Langone Family Health Centers is to improve the overall health of the communities served by delivering high quality, culturally competent primary care and related services within community-based settings. Sunset Park AmeriCorps Food Access Navigators (AFAN) will use a "screen and intervene" approach to connect residents with available resources. This approach involves a food insecurity screening to determine if the resident is at risk of being food insecure. Once a resident is deemed at risk of being food insecure, AFANs will use an active referral and case management process to assist residents in obtaining resources. The AFAN member will directly reach out to the resident about the programs and help them apply. The screen and intervene approach acknowledges and responds to the challenges to obtaining resources such as language and cultural barriers, the often challenging application process, and the confusion about resources residents are actually eligible for. AFANs will be able to assist residents in their preferred language and help them navigate the complex application process. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as selection is continuous and the class may fill before the application deadline. NYU Langone Healthy Future Corps exceeds the responsibilities of a typical 9 to 5 job. Members are required to work M-F during business hours. All placement sites may assign additional work, a member must complete additional Independent Service Project (ISP) hours, and members are required to participate in team days, service projects and selected site specific trainings.
