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. 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.

A D4P Disclaimer… All of our positions require individuals with an entrepreneurial mind who are able to navigate ambiguity, take matters into their own hands, take risks, learn things they don’t know, and do whatever it takes to get the job done. That might mean working until midnight with the team, reading hundreds of PeaceMover applications, helping coordinate our Global Training Summit, dancing your booty off, crunching numbers in Excel, and going out of your way to share the D4P story with the world.
