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 under-resourced. In partnership with California Volunteers the AmeriCorps Health Fellows program places AmeriCorps Health Fellows at CCALAC member community health centers across Los Angeles County.

Selected AmeriCorps Health Fellows serve at one of CCALAC’s member health center and serve Full-Time (1700 Hours) or Part-Time (900 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 (full-time) or $12,750 (part-time) living allowance disbursed in bi-weekly installments. Full time members are also eligible for health insurance, student loan forbearance, mileage reimbursement, and two Education Awards totaling $10,000. Part-time members are eligible for a $3,447.50 Education Award. In addition, AmeriCorps members receive monthly CCALAC trainings, clinic trainings, participate in community service, and have the opportunity to attend CCALAC’s annual Symposium.

The CCALAC AmeriCorps Health Fellows program is ideal for recent high school and college graduates interested in pursuing a career in community 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!
