Montana Public Health AmeriCorps Community Building
Richland County Health Department
About the organization
Richland County Health Department's Communities in Action Corps program develops stronger communities in rural, frontier, and tribal communities across Montana by improving the capacity of local public health, and their partners, to lead communities in addressing social determinants of health challenges.
Communities in Action Corps is seeking AmeriCorps members to serve with rural, frontier, and tribal health departments in Montana to develop a community building process. Rural health departments were hit extra hard by the COVID-19 pandemic due to a lack of funding and resources. AmeriCorps members are needed to address the challenges of COVID-19, and assist local health departments in completing a community health assessment. After gathering local data, members will facilitate meetings to begin a strategic planning process identifying and prioritizing community needs.
Strong Communication, meeting facilitation, conflict resolution, team building, self-motivation and cultural competence.
