Safe Routes to Health - Beaumont Health
 
 
 
The Safe Routes to Health AmeriCorps program (SRTH) at Michigan Fitness Foundation connects Michiganders to health, wellness, and physical activity resources in their communities. SRTH members at Beaumont Health serve the broader Southeastern Michigan region as Community Engagement Liaisons, focusing on chronic disease prevention and management through education and services that support healthy eating, active living, and maintaining a healthy weight as well as increased opportunities for physical activity. Each member is assigned a site supervisor who provides mentorship, supervision, and access to professional development opportunities at the host site. Members also participate in ongoing professional development, team-building, and at least two outside/group service activities with the SRTH statewide team. Members will receive training in a variety of areas to support service projects, gain valuable skills, and real-world experience. Members serve 900 hours over 8-11 months, averaging 20 hours per week. Current service locations with Beaumont Health include: Dearborn & Farmington Hills; Grosse Pointe/Harper Woods & Troy; Royal Oak & Troy; or Trenton, Taylor, & Wayne. Some larger team meetings would take place at the Southfield office. NOTE: Service activities may be partially or fully remote during the COVID-19 pandemic, this is subject to change as new guidance is issued. TO APPLY: please complete the application linked here and email your resume and cover letter to the Program Director listed. In your cover letter, indicate the service location(s) you would prefer to serve.
