Rose Graduates from Drexel’s Community Health Worker Peer Training Academy
Hopeworks is so proud to share that Youth Healing Team intern Rose Nunes has graduated from Drexel’s Community Health Worker Peer Training Academy, an impressive accomplishment that prepares Rose for a career in public health as community health worker!
The Training Academy is a nine-week, 165-hour, trauma-informed, mutual learning environment for young adults with lived experience of violence to become Community Health Worker Peers and Certified Peer Specialists. The Training Academy helps young adults grow into trauma-informed, human services professionals who share life experiences with their clients, break down stigma, and walk alongside people to help them access services.
For Rose, this is just the beginning. This program has prepared her well for her dream job in public and community health, really working to make a difference in communities across the region!
