Dance 4 Peace (http://www.dance4peace.org) is an innovative, global peace education nonprofit that engages young people through dance and creative movement to transform violence, conflict and bullying in schools. We are inspiring a generation of leaders and peacemakers through an innovative curriculum that promotes empathy, mediation skills, anger management, and conflict resolution to instill social and emotional competencies for peace.
We are a fast-paced educational nonprofit that began in Bogota, Colombia during a dancer’s Fulbright Scholarship and now have programs in the United States in Baltimore, Newark, New York City and Washington DC and internationally in Colombia, Germany, and the Philippines. The program has worked with over 4,566 youth in eight cities on four continents. Our vision is to ignite global social change through the art of movement.
Dance 4 Peace was recently awarded a Cordes Fellowship at the Opportunity Collaboration and named a Youth Leader by the Inter-American Development Bank. We are building a movement of intercultural exchange in peacebuilding and violence prevention through dance. Dance 4 Peace hubs share best practices in conflict transformation and social and emotional learning as part of the global PeaceMover network. Our program is creative, dynamic, completely movement-based and evaluated, and adaptable to specific cultures, communities and contexts. We envision a world where creative movement redefines how we build cultures of peace in schools.
We are a small team with big plans. This is a perfect role for an individual looking to make a dramatic difference in their community, gain exceptional work experience as a part of an intimate, high-caliber team, and play an influential and exciting role in the building and expansion of our program.
Responsibilities may include:
The ideal candidate has 1-3 years of work experience and is passionate about making a big difference in education and conflict resolution through dance and creative movement.
