Our objective is to produce competent entry-level Emergency Medical Responders and Advocates who can service the community with basic life support care via the Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

EMS Corps strives to provide resources and alternatives to young adults interested in being healthcare professionals. We are proud affiliates of the Alameda County Health Pipeline Partnership (ACHPP). ACHPP is a coalition of health focused youth programs that together provide a supportive network for youth under-represented in health services. The programs focus on providing students with the academic, social, and professional development needed for a successful health care career.
