Community Health Worker - Certificate
Community Health Workers (CHW) are members of a distinct community who work and build trust at the grassroots level. They play an important role in bridging the gap between cultures and health care systems. CHWs help clients navigate through the system and community services and help diverse populations overcome barriers that prevent them from accessing and benefiting from health services. CHWs serve as advocates, facilitators, motivators, culture brokers and resources, with the overall goal of mentoring and empowering clients, communities and health systems to achieve positive outcomes and to reach the optimal level of wellness for everyone.
The stand-alone community health worker certificate is only available in the College for Adult and Applied Learning. A community health worker certificate can also be earned by completing the CHW concentration with a major in public health in the College for Women or the College for Adult and Applied Learning.
