Dance 4 Peace now recruiting Summer Interns in D.C. and NYC

Dance 4 Peace is now recruiting Communications, Program and Community Interns in Washington, DC and New York City for Summer 2012!

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 the United States in Baltimore, Newark, New York City and Washington DC and internationally in Colombia, Germany, and the Philippines. 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.
