Community Health Worker

The Community Health Worker (CHW) training program at Hostos Community College offers NYC residents the opportunity to gain skills and experience in the field of community health and outreach, and to contribute to the health and well-being of their communities. This highly interactive course has been specifically designed using popular education methods where we draw from the experiences and knowledge from the students as active learners to integrate the core competencies of CHWs.

The CHW apprenticeship is grant funded. There is no tuition cost for the employer or apprentice.
