Public Health AmeriCorps is Here

Program Mission Statement

The Gem State Public Health AmeriCorps program aims to increase, expand, and enhance the capacity of existing programs and services offered by public health agencies, increase the number of trained suicide prevention interventionalists, and supportmembers’ interest to continue to work in the public health sector.

Program Vision

Through the Gem State Public Health program, members will conduct needs assessments regarding collaborations and partnerships, recruit potential partnerships as well as coordinate meetings, design training materials, and provide other support to public health agencies. Members will also conduct ASIST and QPR training for community members to increase the number of suicide prevention interventionalists throughout Idaho. The program will offer members academic advising and the opportunity to explore degree options that focus on public health.
