The Youth Health Service Corps (YHSC) strives to improve access to health care by increasing the likelihood that participants who plan to pursue careers in primary healthcare return to work with medically underserved populations and apply to pipeline programs like the National Health Service Corps (NHSC).


The purpose of the Youth Health Service Corps (YHSC) is to increase enrollment, retention, and success in the allied health and nursing professions by exposing high school students to these careers through service-learning.

YHSC is an award-winning health career recruitment program that engages middle and high school students in quality service-learning projects that address pressing community health issues. Through service, YHSC members explore health careers while acquiring real-life experience working with under-served populations in community health care settings.
