Community Health Worker Ambassadors

The University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health Community Health Worker Institute (CHWI) is excited about the third cohort of the South Carolina Community Health Worker Ambassadors Program (SC CHW Ambassadors). The South Carolina Community Health Worker Ambassadors Program (SC CHW Ambassadors) is an initiative dedicated to advancing the CHW workforce in South Carolina. The SC CHW Ambassadors Program has a diverse group of ambassadors to serve each year to provide expertise, advice, and guidance to state-wide partners and fellow CHWs across the state.

Open Call: 2023-2024 CHW Ambassadors
The USC Arnold School of Public Health Center for Community Health Alignment (CCHA) is seeking up to 10 interested, motivated Community Health Workers (CHWs) to become SC CHW Ambassadors for a one-year period. In order to maximize our reach and promote regional diversity, ideally two CHWs will be selected from each of five regions. Ambassadors will provide expertise, advice and guidance to the CCHA and its partners related to a variety of workforce issues, including CHW training, organizational preparedness, and program evaluation for a period of one year. Ambassadors will receive training which will provide them with the information and skills needed to be successful in their commitment as Ambassadors.

To apply, interested CHWs should secure permission from your employer and complete the application form by November 15, 2022.For more information about the program and to view previous Ambassador cohorts visit our website:
