Are you passionate about Child Protection and interested in increasing your skills and building your professional network across sectors? The FXB Center for Health & Human Rights at Harvard University is accepting applications for their 2023-2024 Child Protection Certificate cohort. Harvard graduate students across all schools and degree programs may apply, but admission is limited to 30 individuals. Take a look at the 2023-2024 brochure here.

This interdisciplinary program incorporates ongoing child protection research and practice grounded in field-based realities and takes into account the expertise of UNICEF, a university-wide faculty steering committee, and external child protection experts. The curriculum is composed of courses selected from across Harvard’s graduate programs and covers five domains of child protection:

  1. Child Protection Systems
  2. Violence Against Children
  3. Justice for Children
  4. Social Change/Family Strengthening
  5. Child Protection Leadership Tools

Requirements include completion of 12 credits selected from CPC course offerings in at least three of the curriculum’s five domains as well as participation in a one-semester, non-credit child protection seminar series during the upcoming spring semester.

The seminar series will enable candidates to consolidate their understanding of the child protection field in both the domestic and international arenas through exchange with invited expert speakers and mentorship by senior child protection practitioners. Students will be encouraged to share their own child protection research and experience and engage with their peers. See website for timing details.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis but interested students are encouraged to apply early.
