Why Serve Florida?

Florida’s diverse population allows NHC members to be involved with different aspects of public health and see the effects of improved healthcare access on Northeast Florida. Members may provide healthcare and social services that support military families, homeless populations, refugee populations, people with substance use disorders, people with HIV or AIDS, LGBTQIA+ youth, and so many more. Members may serve at any of Northeast Florida's five major hospitals or an array of critical community organizations, build relationships with important community partners, and create new initiatives to address community needs. 

Northeast Florida’s unique geographical makeup and great weather allows members to have the opportunity to spend time outdoors near the beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches, kayaking the St. Johns River, and take day trips to hike in Florida’s various nature preserves. Jacksonville, Florida is also a driving distance to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, as well as Miami for weekend excursions. NHC Florida is one of NHC's most affordable operating locations, and program staff makes it a priority to ensure members are supported during their stay in the Sunshine State.

Quote

‘‘ As someone who values service and continuous learning, my time with NHC has blown me away. The trainings and meetings give you all the tools you need to be successful in the program, but you are then encouraged to have your own creative ideas throughout your service term. Being wanted and needed at my host site has made me feel appreciated, heard, and excited to serve my community each day. I find fulfillment in striving to understand what I may not have personally experienced, all the while forming connections and respect amongst whom I serve for and alongside. ’’

Cassidy Burrelli - NHC 2020-2021
