Pathways to Work
Pathways to Work is a 12-week paid internship at AmeriHealth Caritas District of Columbia. Interns will gain practical work experience in a health care setting and will receive training in hospitality and tourism. Interns will develop professionally through technical trainings and weekly seminars. The program provides 90 days of follow-up support once the formal internship concludes, helping to ensure interns have all the resources necessary for their success.
Pathways to Work is about to enroll its fifth class of interns in winter 2018. The program started in fall 2016 and has seen over 40 interns graduate successfully. Cohort 5 will intern from December 17, 2018, through February 20, 2019. We are no longer accepting applications for the winter 2018 class. Please check back for our fall 2019 cohort information.
