The Idaho HealthCorps AmeriCorps program has two groups of members: Health Navigators and Benny’s HealthCorps.
The Idaho HealthCorps AmeriCorps program partners Health Navigators with non-profits across the state in paid volunteer positions. These positions offer community members the opportunity to receive support while volunteering with their favorite non-profit. Health Navigators assist the non-profit through direct service including but not limited to recruiting and managing volunteers, working directly with community members to help make a change, or doing work involved in making a direct change. These members are required to collect and submit data on behalf of Idaho HealthCorps while still following the policies and guidelines of their site. These positions come in three different contract types: Full Time (1,700 hours), Reduced Full Time (1,200 hours), and Part Time (900 hours) and offer a living allowance and a Segal education award*. Only Full Time (1,700 hours) positions offer childcare and health insurance. Please contact Idaho HealthCorps staff for stipend and education award amounts as well as health insurance allowances. Health Navigator positions require cash and in-kind match. For information on cash and in-kind match requirements, please contact Idaho HealthCorps staff.
