People & Sponsors

Administrative Team

The Administrative Team, what most organizations call staff, provides administrative and program support for teams in the field.

Field Teams

The field teams are the individuals who do the fundamental work of CPT, based in our program sites and standing in solidarity with our global partners. They are made up both of stipended members (full- and part-time) and reservists (corps members who volunteer their time for CPT). See here for more information about our programs.

Psychosocial Care

CPT prioritizes care and wellbeing in the work that we do. The Care Coordinator operates in a space apart from from, but in dialogue with, the Administrative and Field Teams.
