2017 Courier Program at Frontier Nursing University
The Courier Program is an eight week, rural and public health, service-learning program with a rich and adventuresome history that targets college students with interest in public health, health care or a related field. The Courier Program offers a unique opportunity for students to gain insight into the challenges and opportunities of providing healthcare in rural and underserved areas. Throughout this eight week program, Couriers become immersed and engaged through their Courier Clinic Site. These sites are often remote, located in culturally unique communities in Appalachia and elsewhere. During their time on site, Couriers will shadow a variety of clinicians and provide leadership on special projects, as well as other avenues of community participation. Courier’s experience help them to fully comprehend the complexities of rural and underserved communities and health care, as well as grasp the compassionate and caring legacy established by our founder, Mary Breckinridge, which is carried on by FNU students, alumni, couriers and faculty. The Courier Program has a “Hearts On, Hands Off” approach to learning. Couriers learn by observing their clinic site mentors, speaking with patients, assisting with special projects such as health booths, brochures on health related topics, leading events and other projects. Couriers may participate in any activity which does not require formal medical or healthcare training. Couriers leave with a profound understanding and deep respect for the communities they serve during their time as a Courier.
Dates are June 2 – July 29, 2017 in Hyden, KY.

Camp AmeriKids (a program of The ELM Project)
Camp AmeriKids, a summer camp for children living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS and sickle cell disease, is looking for caring, responsible, energetic and fun counselors for our 2017 season. A volunteer counselor team is responsible for the 24-hour supervision of a cabin and maintains a camper to counselor ratio of about 2 to1. Counselors spend each day of camp with their cabin group as they rotate through a schedule of activities and participate in new and exciting workshops provided by the program staff. The cabin counselor’s enthusiastic participation in all aspects of camp, from meals and activities to nightly special events and cabin chats, is crucial in creating a memorable camp experience for our campers. Counselors are expected to be role models, sources of energy and ideas, and are a key part of the Camp AmeriKids community. Room & board at our site in Warwick, NY is provided.
Volunteers can apply for our 2017 camp session that will be held from August 5-12, 2017.
Applications are available on the Camp AmeriKids website.
