Pathways to Work

Pathways to Work is a 14-week paid internship at AmeriHealth Caritas through a partnership with the YWCA. Interns will gain practical work experience in a health care setting and will receive a nationally recognized certification in Hospitality and Guest Services Gold. Interns will develop as employees through technical trainings and weekly seminars. The program provides 90 days of follow-up support once the formal internship concludes. This ensures that interns have all of the resources necessary for their success.
