Community Health Worker

CHW infographicThe Community Health Worker (CHW) training program through the Northeast Resiliency Consortium prepared students to work within their communities as patient advocates, health educators and liaisons between the community and existing health/social services at large. CHW students were introduced to a variety of health related themes that will prepare them for this multi-faceted position, including the relationship between health and human behavior, managing high-risk behaviors and disease prevention.

Eligible students are qualified to receive enhanced services through NRC, including:

  • Full suite of employment readiness services
  • Job placement assistance
  • College enrollment assistance
  • Personal supportive services
  • Access to NRC’s textbook lending library
  • Job retention services
