Community Health Worker (CHW) Training and Apprenticeship Program

The CHW Training and Apprenticeship Program will prepare you to for a job as a full-time Community Health Worker or similar role in healthcare, community health, and beyond. CHWs are essential public health workers who can undertake various activities including outreach, community education, resource navigation, social support and advocacy. Through this program, CHWs will receive 4-6 weeks of virtual classroom training with an established CHW educator. This will be followed by a placement in an apprenticeship role in a community based organization, city-run program, or community clinic for a minimum of 6 weeks. CHWs will be paid for the duration of the program, and the classroom training will be provided free of charge.

The virtual training will be completed from home. The virtual classroom training will take place from 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday, for 30 hours per week and will be monitored for completion; hours are subject to change. Each day will include 60 minutes of break time.

The apprenticeship position is slated to take place from 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday, subject to change with the possibility of weekend shifts. Hours will not exceed 35 per week, and CHWs will receive 60 minutes of break time daily. The apprenticeship will include a combination of in-person and virtual work; apprentices will be paired with a supervisor at their host organization who will help determine their work and daily schedule.

Apprenticeship projects will cover the following areas:

  • Supporting community-based COVID-19 response through outreach and community engagement events, both in-person and virtual
  • Conducting neighborhood asset mapping e.g. calling and/or visiting local food pantries, senior centers, and libraries; inputting information into a resource guide
  • Helping individual residents to get connected to these services e.g. shadowing CBO staff who provide client navigation services; helping clients fill out applications to specific services; checking in on clients to follow up on their needs

FAQs:

  • There will be a range of training start dates, starting at the beginning of August.
  • V4AC staff will be paid $25 / hour for the duration of the classroom learning and apprenticeship.
  • If you apply for, are offered, and accept this program, you cannot switch into any other V4AC roles during the duration of the CHW program.

  • Following the apprenticeship, the Health Department will help participants apply to full-time CHW positions in community organizations and healthcare settings. While we hope for a positive outcome for everyone who participates, it is not possible to guarantee that participants will be hired at the end of the program, however participants will have gained valuable field experience to position them well for a job in community health.

Applications for this program are now closed.  Thank you for your interest!
