El Sol’s career pathway initiative promotes and strongly believes in the identity and personal and professional growth of the CHW/P, regardless of educational degree and title/position. The CHW/P identity embodies the essence of what makes a strong CHW/P, a chosen member of the community who demonstrates a fiercely spirited and community-driven leadership and commitment to make a difference in their communities. The CHW/P is a trusted leader who maintains strong ties with their community and does their job best by meeting people where they are and we believe in the upward mobility of CHWs/Ps personal and professional advancement.
