Our members spoke, and we have heard you. Over the last several months, our members requested more opportunities for sharing and collaborating within the workforce. In response, NACHW is starting a pilot program of Learning Collaboratives where CHWs from across the country come together for meetings around a certain focus area. These Learning Collaboratives are a space for members to listen to each other, learn from each other, develop our leadership skills and voices, and lift up CHW expertise and resources
The six collaborative groups will be:
- CHW Organizational Leaders
- Spanish Speaking Promotores/as
- Mental Health
- Immigrants and Refugees
- Community Violence Prevention
- Community Health Representatives (CHRs)
Community Health Representatives (CHRs) refer to the individuals working through the Community Health Representative program run through Indian Health Services on many tribal nations. You can learn more about CHRs here.
