Community Health Workers Help Build Healthy Communities

Reach Out’s Community Health Worker (CHW) Training and Apprenticeship programs prepare individuals to become the bridge between the healthcare system and the community in an effort to address health disparities and social determinants of health, which collectively influence the health outcomes of the population. In association with Victor Valley College and the Local Apprenticeships Uniting a Network of Colleges and High Schools (LAUNCH) network, participants learn a high level skill set to become Certified CHW Professionals.

Advanced Training

Training Community Health Workers in substance use education yields multifaceted benefits. By harnessing their influence and knowledge, we create a cost-effective, grassroots approach that not only prevents and addresses substance use disorders, but also fosters a culture of informed decision-making, compassion, and improved overall community well-being. These empowered frontline advocates become equipped to:

  • Raise awareness about substance misuse risks
  • Offer culturally sensitive interventions
  • Identify early signs of addiction
