WAHT Workforce Programs

WAHT Workforce programs at the Women’s Community Clinic increase the pool of underrepresented individuals who are exposed to diverse career opportunities in the health professions. Our geographic focus of working with young women of color in San Francisco, specifically the Western Addition, assures that we’re also building the workforce capacity of young people in the local community.

WAHT currently provides health careers training at three different track levels:

  • WAHT Internship Track I: A 30-hour health careers training curriculum for Western Addition community members interested in gaining more skills and knowledge around women’s health and careers in health. 
  • WAHT Internship Track II: A 7-month curriculum that includes a health worker position at the Women’s Community Clinic with job placement support upon successful completion of Internship Track II.

Successful completion of WAHT Internship Track I is a pre-requisite to apply for Internship Track II.

Track II is targeted towards high school and transitional aged young women from San Francisco, with a preference for Western Addition/Fillmore residents.

  • WAHT Fellowship: An intensive and high level 18-month, paid part-time staff position at the Women’s Community Clinic with job placement support upon successful completion of Fellowship. Fellows receive significant professional development and mentorship opportunities.
