Description

The National Health Corps AmeriCorps service program (NHC) fosters healthy communities by connecting those who need it most with health and wellness education, benefits, and services, while developing tomorrow’s compassionate health leaders. A key priority for the NHC program is to eliminate health disparities and the underlying structural oppression that perpetuates them.

NHC members fulfill unique positions at their host site organizations that include COVID-19 Responder, Care Coordinator, Case Manager, Health Educator, Outreach Coordinator, and Patient Navigator. Learn more about NHC's open service positions at https://nationalhealthcorps.org/open-positions.

NHC members provide three main services in the organizations where they serve:

1. Education: NHC members provide education and skills building support to individuals to improve their health and overall wellness.

2. Access: NHC members assist individuals in accessing health and related social services to help them lead healthier lives.

3. Capacity Building: NHC members improve or expand direct services to make them more efficient and effective or expand their scale or reach.

While each NHC member's activities vary in order to meet the specific host site and community needs, the majority of member activities for the 2021-2022 program year will be focused on four major areas: supporting individuals with opioid and prescription drug overuse disorders; increasing seniors' ability to remain in their homes with the same or improved quality of life for as long as possible; increasing physical activity and improving nutrition with an aim of reducing obesity and related chronic conditions (diabetes, heart disease, etc.); and preventing and responding to COVID-19 (including the underlying structural oppression that contributes to the pandemic).

Members complete a service term of 1,700 hours and 42-46 weeks (1,200 hours and 30-33 weeks for NHC Delaware). Note that NHC Delaware members must live in New Castle County, DE, and will begin service in May 2021. Most other NHC members in other program locations will begin service on August 30, 2021.
