In conjunction with our CAP Child Advocacy Clinic Seminar, HLS second- and third-year students are working at a variety of organizations serving children. Below are the placement organizations at which students have conducted their fieldwork in recent semesters.
- Through our fall and spring clinical option, a student may work part-time at one of the Boston-area organizations listed below.
- Through our winter-spring clinical option, students may work at either a local Boston-area placement listed below, or a national organization. Winter-spring students work full-time in the winter term and part-time in the spring term. Note that for placements outside of the Boston area, the student will be on-site at the agency during the winter term and return to Cambridge to work remotely during the spring.
- Please be aware, when deciding between the winter-spring and spring options that due to a variety of factors that affect the matching process, CAP may prioritize a winter-spring student over a spring student for a particular placement. Thus if you are interested in being at a particular agency, you may need to demonstrate a greater commitment by enrolling in the winter-spring clinic. If you have any questions about which option is right for you, please contact Crisanne (firstname.lastname@example.org).
