AmeriCorps Health Fellows Program

The AmeriCorps Health Fellows is CCALAC’s Workforce Pipeline program focused specifically on increasing access to comprehensive primary care for Los Angeles County’s medically underserved. In partnership with California Volunteers and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) the CCALAC AmeriCorps Health Fellows program places AmeriCorps Health Fellows at various community clinics across Los Angeles County.

Selected AmeriCorps Health Fellows are placed at one of CCALAC’s Member clinics and serve full-time(1700 hours). They work in a variety of roles including: outreach, enrollment, health education, case management, and quality improvement. In exchange, AmeriCorps Health Fellows receive a $25,500 living allowance (disbursed in bi-weekly installments), health insurance, student loan forbearance, mileage reimbursement, training, 2 Education Awards totaling $10,000 ($6,495 Segal Education Award and $3,505 California For All Education Award), valuable work experience, and gratifications knowing you have helped make a difference in the lives of the medically underserved.

The CCALAC AmeriCorps Health Fellows program is ideal for recent college graduates interested in pursuing a career in community/public health or those wanting to work and learn about community health centers, the populations they serve, and their operations and functions. Many of CCALAC’s past AmeriCorps members have gone on to successfully be admitted to medical school, MPH programs or have been hired by their host site clinic!
