WellShare International envisions a world where your zip code, your skin color, and your birthplace do not determine your access to quality healthcare, and where all people can achieve optimal health and wellness.

We are a non-profit organization headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a forty-year history of partnering with communities, health care systems, government, and social service providers to promote health equity and wellbeing. Using a community health worker (CHW) model, we work with immigrant communities in Minnesota and with rural communities in Africa. Our programs serve people across the lifespan – including pregnant women, infants, children, youth, adults, and the elderly.

Support the WellShare mission by applying to our Board! Board service is an exciting way to be actively engaged in the public health field and have a real impact. We are seeking a few additional members for our Board of Directors, especially people who are passionate about our work and have skills or perspectives in any of the following areas:  fundraising, marketing/brand development, finance, lived experience from one of the communities we serve (Somali, Karen, Latinx, Hmong), or lived experience of immigrating to the U.S.
