Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) is currently accepting applications for its Peacemaker Corps. Join us in building partnerships to transform violence and oppression!
Applicants must be 21 years of age or older and have participated in, or plan to participate in, a short-term CPT Delegation or internship. Qualified applicants may be invited to participate in CPT’s intensive, month-long training from 5 January – 5 February 2017 in Colombia, South America where membership in the Peacemaker Corps is discerned. Trained Peacemaker Corps members are eligible to apply for open positions on CPT teams. The primary language for the Colombia training will be Spanish with English interpretation.
CPT builds partnerships to transform violence and oppression in situations of lethal conflict around the world. We are committed to work and relationships that: 1) honor and reflect the presence of faith and spirituality, 2) strengthen grassroots initiatives, 3) transform structures of domination and oppression, and 4) embody creative nonviolence and liberating love.
CPT understands violence to be rooted in systemic structures of oppression. We are committed to undoing oppressions within our own lives and in the policies and practices of our organization.
CPT is a Christian-identified organization with multi-faith/spiritually diverse membership. We seek individuals who are capable, responsible and rooted in faith/spirituality to work for peace as members of violence-reduction teams trained in the disciplines of nonviolence. We are committed to building a Peacemaker Corps that reflects the rich diversity of the human family in ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender identity, language, national origin, race and sexual orientation.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 7 October 2016; direct any questions and send complete application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
