To learn more about this credential, we also made this short video to help you decide if certification is for you.
No matter which option you choose, CPR/AED and Stop-the-Bleed certifications are available to everyone. There are also a variety of health exploration workshops for you to choose from during the Institute. Please fill out this form to tell us what you’re interested in, and we will personalize your schedule.

After your experience with GIV, we hope you continue to make use of the incredible opportunities presented by AHEC, especially the 2023-2024 HERO Program.
HERO stands for Health Exploration Resources and Opportunities, and is a no-cost, four-month, 1-to-1 online mentoring program that pairs high school students with volunteer medical students trained in mentoring and STEM education. Students in the HERO Mentoring Program engage with their mentors in ten enrichment modules: one focused on health career exploration, one focused on goal setting, and eight modules focused on human biology and health science. These sessions are scheduled once per week, at a time that works best for the student and mentor, from October to January.
This year, the program is open to all 9th through 12th graders residing in Caledonia, Essex, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Orleans, Orange, Washington, and Chittenden Counties. HERO applications open in August 2023. Application for the HERO Mentoring program is competitive, and based on participants’ demonstrated interest in health and medicine and commitment to the full duration of the program. There are no academic prerequisites, and no prior knowledge or experience is required.
Thanks, see you all this summer!
