Overview This is a grant funded position that will provide Program Coordination for the North Bay Community Health Worker Training Program (NB-CHWTP) to address community needs in north bay counties to access healthcare and improve health outcomes. The NB-CHWTP is a collective impact model designed to train CHWs to close the gap in primary care access in underserved communities in counties North of San Francisco. Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, Sonoma, and Yolo Counties are some of the most racially and ethnically diverse counties in the United States. The NB-CHWTP will provide expanded training opportunities for entry level CHWs, extend the impact of CHWs by providing advanced training, and develop experiential and employment support for CHWs. Using a consortium approach of partners that include Redwood Community Health Coalition, Northern California Center for Well Being, and Touro University California will implement the following three goals:
Goal 1: EXPANSION OF CHW TRAINING - Increase the number of CHWs trained from diverse communities to create convenient access points to public health and healthcare to reduce health inequities.
Goal 2: EXTENSION OF CHW IMPACT - Implement advanced training for current CHWs to address gaps in public health and community needs and improve community wellness and health outcomes.
Goal 3: EMPLOYMENT & EXPERIENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES - Develop a network of partners who will provide CHW trainees with experiential training (shadowing, internships, and apprenticeships) and employment opportunities.
The experiential coordinator is responsible for supporting and providing leadership in the day-to-day activities and operations related to the employment and experiential components to implement the NB-CHWTP. Flexibility, curiosity, and initiative are essential traits for a successful candidate. This position will be physically located at the TUC campus in Vallejo, CA with travel required to partner clinics throughout the North Bay.
