Want to keep your community healthy?

Become certified as a Community Health Worker.

Community Health Workers are trusted community members who serve as liaisons between health and social services in their immediate communities. They advocate for other community members, identify resources, and help improve their health outcomes.

VIP Community Services will help you prepare a strong application for the Community Health Worker (CHW) certification program run by the Institute for Training Outreach and Community Health (InTOuCH) at Columbia University. Sessions for this free hybrid program start in April 2024. See below for more information.

Applications open January 15th, but it is important to prepare ahead of time. Complete the below resume and autobiography templates and send both to Carmen Rivera at crivera@vipservices.org to be contacted with more information on how to apply. You can also call Carmen at 347-574-0445.
