MEN'S HEALTH CREW

Men sitting in a circleThe Men’s Health CREW is a 12-month training and internship program for men of color between the ages of 18 and 24. The mission of the Health Community Resources for Empowerment and Wellness (CREW) program is to address health disparities among African-American and Latino males, empowering them to take control of their health by engaging in preventative practices, accessing health care services, advocating for their own health needs, and providing health education to peers in their communities, all while pursuing their own health career goals. The Men’s Health CREW works closely with Youth Opportunities Unlimited Boston to recruit participants, who complete a 6-month training component while receiving intensive case management services. Upon successful completion of training, participants complete a 6-month internship in a public health, community or hospital setting. CREW participants receive a weekly stipend.
