 About IHPC

The Inland Health Professions Coalition (IHPC) was established in March 2007 to connect the Health Careers stakeholders in the Riverside, San Bernardino, Pomona Valley and Innovation Valley regions. View 2018 Annual Report.

Members of the Inland Coalition include K-12, community college and university faculty, hospital and health care agency representatives, county office of education staff, and interested professional organization and community agency representatives who work to address the growing need for health care workers in the Inland Empire. We do this by developing goals and objectives that directly support health pathway programs in the junior high and high schools throughout our region. 

IHPC is an initiative of Reach-Out. Reach-Out is a non-profit organization with a mission to strengthen communities by bringing people together to solve our region's toughest issues: breaking barriers to educational achievement, expanding economic opportunities, and creating safe, healthy and innovative communities.

Interested in Interning with IHPC?  

In today’s job market, employers are looking for not a good employee but the best employee. They want you to have marketable skills, an impressing resume, education, previous work experience, and the ability to work with a team. But, where do you acquire the professional experience if no one is willing to hire without the prior experience? The answer is simple, internships! By doing an internship with IHPC one will gain independent reasoning, teamwork, and expand upon communication skills. IHPC allows interns to not only work in the office; in fact, interns often accompany staff in the community and on important projects. All college majors are welcome to apply; however, IHPC interns focus on social services/public health/public relations, and health education/promotion.

Common Questions:

  • Can I receive student service hours for my college program? Yes. Many of our interns complete the internship to receive coursework/student learning hours for their university.

  • How many hours a week will I work? As many as you would like! A minimum of 4 per week.

  • Deadline to apply: Applications are accepted year round. Apply at least one month before desired start date.

Ready to apply? Fill out the application (specify IHPC as the program of interest) and email it to carmela@we-reachout.org or call 909.982.8641

The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size but by the depth of their comittment to make a difference in the lives of others

Volunteering at IHPC

The greatest gift of all, is truly one’s time. Your time can never be taken back and the impact that it will leave on students in the Inland Empire will last for years to come. Volunteers are an essential component to the Inland Health Professions Coalition as they continue to break educational barriers. As a volunteer, you will help us organize projects, attend local IHPC events, and assist in the office. Each volunteer brings a new element of strength to the team and we welcome anyone who has a passion to give back and learn to apply! At the moment, the inland empire is experiencing a growth in population and it is expected to grow to 6 million by 2035. With that being said, the need for volunteers in this region is needed now more than ever to prepare for the pre-anticipated health care needs of the Inland Empire come 2035.

When you start giving, instead of getting, you make a difference. You can always give a warm smile, a sincere hello, a positive vibe… your attention, your time, your love, and kindness to those around you
— Roy T. Bennett
