HealthCorps Opportunities


Attention High School and College Graduates, and Students taking an extended  break from classes:

Do you want to work in the health care field but need experience. AmeriCorps is an opportunity to earn while you learn.

HealthCorps is an AmeriCorps service program which places its members in health care settings for a period of one year. This exposes them to the work of health care as a career option along with giving them skills which would make them attractive to employers. This is extremely helpful as the health care field is projected as being one of the strongest career fields over the next decade.

In addition gaining experience serving in the health care field and ongoing professional development. Members will earn a $12,000 stipend and a $5,550 grant towards their continued education. So if funding may be a perceived barrier to continuing education the member not only gets exposed to health care careers and develops usable skills but they can also earn money towards future education.

This program is available across the United States. We in the District of Columbia want to make our opportunities available to DC residents and are reaching out to returning students to ensure that they are aware they will be given priority when applying to the DCPCA Community HealthCorps program. I have included links to brochures which provide details about the program.

To apply or if you have any questions, please contact Eric Vicks evicks@dcpca.org
