Community Health Leadership Initiative (CHLI)

CHLI is a structural change initiative which serves as the connective tissue between the existing workforce development assets and the need that exists in the sexual and drug user health arena.

Through weekly training and mentorship opportunities, CHLI works to build a highly skilled, cross-trained
workforce of individuals with a diverse range of expertise and lived experiences. Our mentorship component pairs individual interested in beginning careers within the sexual and substance user health workforce with seasoned mentors who work to support them towards reaching their personal and professional aspirations.
