Frequently Asked Questions#

You don't have to be a professional in the field, but we ask that you are willing and able to make the commitment to complete both the training and required monthly home assessments.

You must be at least 18 years old.  Our Healthy Homes Educators vary greatly in age and occupations.  We are invested in having a diverse group participating in the program.

Yes.  In order to protect you and the individuals whose homes you will be visiting, a background check will be conducted prior to you receiving a home assessment assignment.

The training is led by specialists who come from a variety of backgrounds.  You will learn all about problems related to pollutants, chemical contaminants and safety hazards in homes, and how they impact health, and common solutions to those problems. 

There will be multiple training sessions and homework in the form of short videos and readings.  We ask that you commit to attending all of the sessions.  We realize that conflicts occur, and we will make efforts to accommodate your schedule on a limited basis.

No.  Even though the training is comprehensive, we are unable to issue credit for classes.

In addition to performing in-home assessments, we encourage our volunteers to be creative with their community outreach ideas and we'll do what we can to support you.  Some outreach ideas include helping out at booths for community events and working on special projects.

We ask that you keep us informed of your availability during those times and we will schedule accordingly.
