The role of the AmeriCorps Health Educator is to provide clinical and community health education to school-based patients and their communities. I provide one-on-one health education and health coaching tailored to the individual needs of my patients and educate young people on a range of health topics including sexual and reproductive health, healthy relationships, nutrition, physical activity, and puberty. I work closely with all members of the SBHC team – the Nurse Practitioner and other medical providers, the medical assistants, mental health clinicians, and front desk staff. In addition, I facilitate a middle school peer health education group with weekly meetings on student-chosen topics, and lead health education workshops in the classroom. I also help other sites with their health fairs and their Adolescent Screening Visits, to assess the needs of the students and refer them to our services. I work in two different clinics: Fuente Wellness Center (which serves the community between the ages of 11-24 years old) and Roosevelt Health Center (which serves Roosevelt Middle School students and their families).

As an intern at CGRS, my main job was to help the center provide much needed resources to attorneys across the country, who fight to advance the rights of women, children, and LGBTQ individuals in this country and abroad through granted asylum. My main work was to conduct individualized country research for asylum cases by creating extensive memos on particular issues in specific countries, information lawyers throughout the country use for their particular asylum cases. In addition, I tracked asylum case outcomes by contacting the lawyers who worked on previous cases, I redacted court decisions for a sponsored study the Center performed, and I performed ad-hoc Spanish translation work (which included translating research and making phone calls to Spanish-speaking clients). Interning for the center taught me to perform individual research with a high degree of responsibility and minimal supervision, in addition to keeping the confidentiality of the clients. This experience helped me gain hands-on experience in a small nonprofit work environment as well as the ability to contribute to a humble cause that defends refugee and immigrant rights.
