Colette Lamothe-Galette Community Healthworker Institute
The NJ Department of Health (NJDOH) established the Colette Lamothe-Galette (CLG) Community Health Worker Institute through a NJ Department of Labor Apprenticeship program. The Institute is named in honor of Colette Lamothe-Galette, who unfortunately passed away in 2020 due to COVID-19 complications. The goal of the Institute is to create a standardized Community Health Worker (CHW) training and certification program, resulting in a robust CHW workforce. This training program helps prepare and deploy an employee faction critical to the recovery and recuperation of New Jerseys’ most vulnerable communities. It creates a needed infrastructure to support CHWs, and the institutions they serve. Through this work, the NJDOH will create career pipelines for CHWs, enhance CHW skill sets and lead sustainability efforts to support this indispensable workforce.
