The Community Health Worker is One of the Fastest-growing Occupations

HealthTeamWorks develops skills for new and seasoned community health workers and other front-line professionals committed to advancing community health. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Community Health Worker (CHW) workforce is projected to grow 14% from 2022 to 2032, much faster than the average for all occupations. On average, about 8,000 yearly openings for CHWs are projected over the decade.

What is a Community Health Worker?

A Community Health Worker is an umbrella term, as this role is as diverse as the communities, sites, and responsibilities this profession assumes. CHWs focus on improving individual and community health, and health access. They forge connections where people live, learn, work, worship, and heal—from the inner city to rural communities.
