Since 1995, the Utah Healthcare Corps has increased access to primary healthcare services for Utahns by reducing economic, geographic, cultural, and language barriers.
The Utah Healthcare Corps (UHC), An AmeriCorps program of the Association for Utah Community Health, currently supports 26 members serving 10 sites throughout the state of Utah. Members of the UHC make a difference in the healthcare community by providing patients with vital health education and translation services, including facilitating health insurance enrollment.
In exchange for 52 weeks of service, participants receive a monthly $1,500 living stipend, a $5,815 Segal Education Award upon successful completion of service, interest-free deferment of student loans, invaluable experience in volunteer management, civic engagement opportunities, and the knowledge that they are making a real difference in the lives of the people they serve.
Utah Healthcare Corps is an AmeriCorps Program
AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at 21,600 unique sites including nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 1 million AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1.4 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing more than 2.3 million volunteers for the organizations they serve.
AmeriCorps programs do more than move communities forward; they serve their members by creating jobs and providing pathways to opportunity for young people entering the workforce. AmeriCorps places thousands of young adults into intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship.
The Association for Utah Community Health (AUCH) reaffirms its commitment to equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, or status as a protected veteran.
