Dance 4 Peace is now recruiting for our Fall 2012 Internship Program in Washington, DC and New York City!


We are looking for programmatic, communications, and social media interns.

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.

Dance 4 Peace is an innovative global nonprofit that prevents violence and bullying and transforms conflict in schools and communities through dance and creative movement. Our curriculum promotes empathy, mediation skills, anger management, and conflict transformation to instill social and emotional competencies for peace. Through school and community center partnerships, Dance 4 Peace connects communities in the United States in Baltimore, Newark, New York City and Washington DC and internationally in Colombia, Germany, and the Philippines to share intercultural stories of peace. Our vision is to ignite global social change through the art of movement, and as such both our curriculum and evaluation system are completely movement-based. To date, Dance 4 Peace has worked with over 5,441 youth in nine cities on four continents.

Dance 4 Peace was recently named a Global Shaper by the World Economic Forum, a Youth Leader by the Inter-American Development Bank and awarded a Cordes Fellowship at the Opportunity Collaboration.
