Goddard House Affiliations & Partnerships

Professional, academic and community affiliations and partnerships are a vital part of our Goddard House mission. Schools, groups and organizations around Brookline and Boston partner with us for on-site and community-based programs that enrich the lives of all participants.

Professional Affiliations

Academic Affiliations

Goddard House enjoys training partnerships with some of the finest academic institutions in Boston. Students intern at Goddard House for a semester or full academic year to gain skills within their specialties to work in the fields of Gerontology or Alzheimer’s care. We also host students who conduct projects and offer programs to residents throughout the year ranging from Brookline High School to Harvard Medical School.

Students are supervised on-site by Goddard House staff in addition to academic faculty at their schools. Interns lead groups and offer opportunities for individual contact to residents though our program department. Current partners include:

  • Berklee College of Music – Undergraduate Music Therapy
