Community Health Worker Program


The goal of the program is to train those who are interested in health and community outreach. Community health workers (CHWs) are frontline public health workers who have a close understanding of the community they serve. Trained CHWs will help advocate for the health needs of individuals and sometimes, for the entire community. The CHW training focuses on health education, health promotion, as well as specific skills for work in underserved, low income and/or non-English speaking communities. Eligible candidates receive the necessary knowledge, skills, tools, and support to be successful; as well as become productive members of the workforce community. This course includes on-site internship where students have the opportunity to work with an agency and gain hands-on experience in this field.
