Affiliate Work/Life Resources

Harvard Affiliate Programs

Harvard affiliates who are not benefits eligible (i.e. not paid by Harvard) have access to the following Work/Life Programs:

Childcare (updated July 8 2020)

Center Based Childcare
Affiliates of Harvard Medical School, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and others on the Harvard Longwood Campus may have access to MASCO-managed Longwood Medical Area child care centers.

Nanny Placement Services- Boston Nanny Centre 
(BNC) provides a range of nanny-placement services to Harvard University affiliate families.

BNC offers Harvard affiliates 10% off any service. You can read more about BNC and their services by visiting their website.

Camps – Summer 2020

Camp Kinda
For summer 2020, Harvard is offering its affiliates access to a free, virtual summer camp experience. Camp Kinda is program designed to keep kids engaged, asking questions, and having fun even while they’re stuck at home. Each weekday through September 1, participating families will get 3-4 hours’ worth of daily activities, all connected to a weekly theme. With a mix of online and offline activities, Camp Kinda is flexible enough to let parents pick and choose what you put in front of your kids (and when), but kid-driven enough to let you step away. See the Camp Kinda flyer. To learn more and sign up for free, visit Enter registration code: HVD20

Employee Development and Wellness Programs 

All affiliates have access to the training and development workshops and programs offered through the Employee Development and Wellness Team. All of our programming is virtual for the forseeable future which makes it easier to attend if you are not on campus. Our calendar of events can be found here and is continually updated so please check back often.

Center for Wellness and Health Promotion

Affiliates have access to the programming available through the Center for Wellness and Health Promotion located in the Smith Center. They provide wellness classes, discounted services such as massage and acupuncture and workshops.

Harvard University Employee Credit Union

The HUECU is more than just a bank. As a member, you have access to financial education, financial counselling, workshops and more.
