Field teams do the front-line work of CPT in solidarity with our global partners based in our program sites. They are made up of both stipended workers (full- and part-time) and Reservists (Peacemaker Corps members who volunteer their time). See here for more information about our programs.
CPT prioritizes care and wellbeing in the work that we do. The Care Coordinator operates in a space apart from, but in dialogue with, the Administrative and Field Teams.
