Our objective is to grow our own health workforce by focusing on three primary areas: employers, education and youth.
Collaboration is the project's foundation. Here's how it works:
We're joining forces with educators to integrate more health-related information into the curriculum, and to to develop educational pathways at the high school level.
We’re working to support and encourage youth interested in health careers with year-round support programs such as seminars, mentoring, and job training:
- Health Pathway Workshops
- Summer Youth Training Academy
- E3 Summer Employment Program
- Work based learning opportunities with local health employers
Local healthcare providers are engaging in the work by providing three levels of support:
- School outreach and guest speakers
- Work-based learning opportunities
- Workforce development policies and move-up
