2021’s June Outreach Orientation for new outreach workers was again virtual, taking place from June 7 to June 11. The training consisted of a combination of recorded sessions, videos and selected readings in advance of the live sessions. You can access the pre-work required for each day in the sidebar.
This training is required for new outreach staff funded by NCFHP (or staff who have never attended the annual NCFHP June outreach training, including student interns and volunteers), and is open to non-NCFHP supported staff at Migrant Health Centers.
