Research Intake Volunteers

10-20 hours
In this role, you will support the John Humphrey Centre in evaluating and monitoring trends on food security. This will include connecting with community members and helping to fill out a food security survey with vulnerable community members via the phone. This survey will help to better understand the needs of the most marginalized, often hard-to-reach populations (e.g., people isolated in their homes due to age and disability, youth, people without status, and people living in homelessness).  We designed a data collection strategy to survey populations that appeared both “in need” and “underserved” in Edmonton. This information is collected and analysed to inform municipal policy and programming as well as further grassroots and community response efforts.

In this position, the volunteer will be provided with a script to call community members. They will not be required to use their own private numbers but a phone application (Mightycall) which allows them to protect their privacy and which can be used on the computer or smartphone. The survey will be filled out online via a google form. We will provide an orientation session to prep the volunteers in delivering the survey as well as in skills to connect individuals to services if needed.
