Dance 4 Peace is now recruiting Part-Time PeaceMover Facilitators in Washington, DC and New York City for Fall 2011!
Dance 4 Peace (http://www.dance4peace.org) is an innovative, global nonprofit that uses dance to inspire youth to be leaders and peacemakers in their communities.
We are a fast-paced educational nonprofit that began in Bogota, Colombia during a dancer's Fulbright Scholarship and now have programs in Colombia, Nepal, New York City, the Philippines, and Washington, DC. Our mission is to promote social and emotional learning skills in youth in a global context in order to prevent school violence and bullying and to build conflict resolution competencies and communities of peace.
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 resolution 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.
