The Community Health Internship Program (CHIP), administered by Wisconsin AHEC (Area Health Education Centers), offers college students a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the fields of community health, public health, and population health. Through CHIP, students can undertake an eight-week summer internship at various healthcare settings across Wisconsin, including local health departments, tribal health centers, community health centers, or community service organizations.

During the internship, students engage in meaningful work that directly contributes to improving community health outcomes. Interns may participate in a wide range of activities, including community outreach programs, health education initiatives, data collection and analysis, policy advocacy, and more. This hands-on experience allows students to apply their classroom knowledge in real-world settings, gaining practical skills and insights into the complexities of public health practice.

Youth Apprentice

Youth Apprenticeship (YA) is a 1-or 2-year program that gives juniors and seniors in high school the chance to explore a career area of interest. Students spend part of their school day earning credit and wages while they gain valuable industry experience under the guidance of a local business mentor. Employers are also encouraged to engage in ongoing conversations with the students regarding the potential for ongoing employment and post-secondary education recommendations tied to the careers that they were exposed to.

Every Youth Apprentice student that successfully completes the career path program requirements will earn an Occupational Skills Proficiency Certification. This certification verifies that they have gained the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to be successful in their chosen industry within the state of Wisconsin.
