AmeriCorps is the national service program that engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in service in the five priority areas of education, public safety, environment, homeland security, and other human needs. AmeriCorps service gives it members the opportunity to impact change in underserved communities, gain valuable life experience, and take steps toward their own future goals.
AmeriCorps Health Fellows are an asset to communities by bridging healthcare and national service. The power of AmeriCorps provides the tools and resources to impact the lives of many. AmeriCorps is a stepping-stone to a brighter future not only for the individual who serves but for the communities they serve. The AmeriCorps program provides a continuous avenue of professional development and personal growth.
The AmeriCorps Health Fellow will serve side-by-side with health center staff and have the opportunity to be of service to your community and learn about health careers. AmeriCorps Health Fellows will provide culturally and linguistically appropriate health education, referrals, and enrollment into programs directly to community members and patients while getting the skills they need to pursue a healthcare profession.
Our AmeriCorps program is a community service and professional development opportunity wrapped into one. This experience enables you to do great things for communities in need while getting in-person training and exposure in the healthcare field.
Over the years, we have maintained 100% rentention rate of our AmeriCorps fellows. Through our program, our fellows have gained new skills in community outreach and care coordination which have helped them to find jobs or pivot into new career paths in healthcare and nonprofit fields. In fact, our Deputy Chief of Clinical Operations and Behavioral Health Operations Director were both AmeriCorps Members at LifeLong Medical Care.
