Dance 4 Peace is now recruiting Part-Time PeaceMover Facilitators in Baltimore, MD

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 8,500 youth in 15 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.
