Community Partnerships

Project for Pride in Living

North Memorial Health Care has partnered with PPL to provide their classroom participants with the opportunity to complete their "job shadowing" experience who have an interest in the field of healthcare. Individuals have "job shadowed" in roles such as clerical, dietary aide and nursing assistant positions. The goal behind this partnership is to create a pipeline to meet our staffing needs as well as to provide employment opportunities for those in the communities that we serve.

Once participants complete their training they work with a retention specialist for 12-18 months afterwards to not only position themselves in the workforce but to continue their career development.

Project for Pride in Living (PPL) is a non-profit organization that has been designed to empower individuals who are seeking to further their growth and development in areas of their career and education. This program utilizes a holistic approach to focus on the individual as a whole. They offer a variety of resources to meet the specific needs of an individual through employment and job readiness services. Participants prepare for long-term success by studying soft skills within the classroom setting and receiving on the job training through "job shadowing".

Roosevelt High School Health Careers Program


North Memorial partners with Roosevelt High School, post-secondary institutions, state health related offices, and a number of local healthcare organizations in this initiative.
