NNPHI Public Health AmeriCorps

Making our nation more resilient and build the next public health workforce.


About the Project

NNPHI is part of Public Health AmeriCorps – AmeriCorps and CDC’s national service program! Together with up to 10 AmeriCorps members, we’ll help our communities, localities and states become healthier, stronger, and more resilient. Specifically, NNPHI will be working with several public health institutes to implement local climate advocacy and community resiliency projects throughout the award period.

During this project year, NNPHI will support the recruitment of two types of AmeriCorps positions:

  1. Climate & Health Communication Fellows:The Climate and Health Communication Fellows engage community members and partners to custom design climate health and resilience messages. They work with host organization staff and community partners to promote disaster resiliency through research and outreach engaging with people in disadvantaged and underrepresented communities. The Fellows will assist the host organization in addressing the impacts of climate change by assisting with updating websites and developing a social media campaign (such as Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) to help residents become better prepared. NNPHI will support the Members’ by providing narrative change training and assisting in language shifts based on the community needs.
  2. Social Services Community Connectors:The Social Services Community Connectors assist vulnerable community members in connecting and building knowledge of social services available to help the community prepare for and adapt to climate change and to be ready in the event of a climate disaster. They also support the host organization with identifying new relationships with community social service providers, creating and disseminating a community health services director and promotional materials about community services, providing educational materials on climate resiliency practices and community-based services, and producing educational webinars/live events about shelters during extreme weather events (e.g., shelter policies, when to shelter, and best practices).
