Boston Children's Hospital Neighborhood Partnerships | School-Based Initiatives

About School-Based Initiatives 

The School-Based Initiative includes partnerships with seven K-5, K-8 and high schools in Boston.  Boston Children’s Hospital social workers and psychologists work onsite to provide clinical, early intervention, and prevention and promotion services to students, and social, emotional and behavioral health training and consultation to school staff.  Family engagement is a critical component of BCHNP’s work in schools. 

BCHNP reaches approximately 1,000 students and provides over 800 hours of training and consultation to school staff and families/caregivers annually. 

List of Partnering Schools for 2019/2020:

  1. Boston Arts Academy
  2. Boston International Newcomers Academy
  3. Boston Latin School
  4. Madison Park Vocational High School
  5. Oliver Hazard Perry School

In 2015, BCHNP expanded its efforts to build the capacity of partner schools through launching a new initiative: The Clough Foundation Training and Access Project (TAP). TAP aims to address students' social, emotional, and behavioral health needs by supporting the development of sustainable systems to meet these needs. It provides schools with training and consultation services.
