AmeriCorps Health Fellows Program
Previously known as the AmeriCorps HealthWorks Program, the AmeriCorps Health Fellows is CCALAC’s AmeriCorps 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 will place 23 AmeriCorps Health Fellows at various community health centers across Los Angeles County.
Selected AmeriCorps Health Fellows will be placed at one of CCALAC’s Member clinics and will serve full-time for 11 months (September 18, 2017 – July 31, 2018). They will work in a variety of roles including: outreach, enrollment and health education. In exchange, HealthWorks members will receive a modest $14,500 stipend (disbursed in bi-weekly installments), health insurance, student loan forbearance, mileage reimbursement, training, a $5,815 education award, valuable work experience, and gratification knowing you’ve 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.
