Posted On 5 November, 2018

Seeking a Program Development Fellow for a new CFHI program focused on
migrant and refugee health in the Central Valley and the Bay Area.


Child Family Health International (CFHI) is a United Nations-recognized
nonprofit organization providing community-based Global Health Education
Programs for students and institutions. Our unique model fosters reciprocal
partnerships and empowerment in local communities– transforming
perspectives about self, healing and global citizenship. We offer nearly 40
programs in 11 countries. Since 1992, we’ve sent over 10,000 participants
on our programs. We also support locally-driven community health
initiatives in the communities in which we work.

We are seeking a Program Development Fellow who will lead the on-the-ground
program development for the “Local-Global” Health Initiative. The Fellow
will also commit to a one-month in-person coordination of an undergraduate
student group in the Bay Area and the Central Valley. The program will
focus on Migrant and Refugee Health in California, with sub-themes of
social services safety net and vulnerable populations. The Program
Development Fellow will establish curriculum, forge community-based
partnerships, and oversee the daily program in collaboration with UC
Davis. The Fellow position will commence in January or February 2019 and
run through September 2019. It is an opportunity to gain experience in
Global Health education, program management, community-based partnership
building, assessment/evaluation, and experiential education.

This opportunity is excellent for a graduate level student interested in
Global Health, Public Health, and/or Education. You will be required to
spend 20 hours per month planning, coordinating, and building the program
from January – July 2019. For the month of August 2019, you will work full
time, with irregular hours, as a facilitator of the group of 5-10 students
piloting the program, leading them through 2 weeks of site visits and
community engagement activities in the San Francisco Bay Area, followed by
2 weeks in California’s Central Valley. You will accompany the group on
all activities and be provided room and board in the student lodging during
the Central Valley portion of the program. You will play a key role in
ensuring that the program is well organized and runs smoothly. In addition,
you will ensure students are safe during programmatic activities and are
reflecting and learning from their day-day experiences.
