CT AHEC Network AmeriCorps Program
 
 
 
The Connecticut Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Network AmeriCorps Program aims to improve academic engagement of economically disadvantaged students through participation in the Youth Health Service Corps (YHSC) and Collegiate Health Service Corps (CHSC) service learning programs, as well as health workshops. The YHSC and CHSC programs are health careers recruitment programs that engage diverse students as leaders in meaningful service learning that address community health issues. Student volunteers are trained to serve in health care settings that serve the underserved. Students are exposed to entry level health care careers and learn how to successfully enter onto upwardly mobile health care career ladders. The program will increase AmeriCorps members' educational and professional status by providing a vast amount of experience in the field.
