Healthcare Careers Alliance

The Healthcare Careers Alliance is a partnership between Civic Works and four leading Baltimore hospitals that prepares youth, ages 18 – 21, for entry-level jobs in the healthcare industry. We provide job training sessions for 75 participants each year and then place them in internships at the partner hospitals. Upon successful completion of an internship, Healthcare Careers Alliance participants are offered full-time jobs earning a minimum of $8.50 per hour with benefits. Since 2001, the Healthcare Careers Alliance has trained 283 participants and placed 83% in full-time employment.
