We’ve talked to CHW Trainers, Supervisors and Program Managers to inquire about their pain points when it comes to training Community Health Workers and they all said the same things:
They wanted access to an up-to-date, readily available curriculum to train CHWs in the core competencies.
They wanted to save time, not waste countless hours of their team's valuable time creating a CHW curriculum themselves.
They wanted something relevant, easily to implement, and easily adaptable to their learners.
They wanted to save money, not spend thousands on a curriculum developer and instructional designer.
We heard these challenges, so we developed a solution to meet your needs.
Our CHW training curriculum builds the skills and competencies needed to promote health equity and reduce health disparities at the personal, family, and community levels. The curriculum aligns with national standards and can be used in diverse settings with diverse learners, in-person or virtually. You can also use our curriculum as a stand-alone, or along with other CHW training curricula.
All licensing packages include instructor implementation training to ensure your trainers know how to implement the curriculum using our signature framework.
Detailed lesson plans. PowerPoint slides decks with speaker scripts and prompts. Modules with built-in activities and recommmend self-study assignments all included.
All licensing packages include consulting services to ensure your training program has a successful start. Add-on services also available on request.
