Student community health workers (CHWs) powered the work of the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) last summer by partnering with local organizations to host a health event at their local park in New Britain, Connecticut. The YWCA Youth Community Health Workers provided a mobile vaccination station, complete with services to help with housing insecurity, domestic violence, and drug abuse. Fourteen individuals were vaccinated during the event, and 250 back-to-school supply kits and gift cards were distributed.
