Volunteer Network

Our volunteer programs include 3-month Fall and Spring Fellowships, 2-month Summer Fellowship, and year-round Short-Term Volunteering opportunities.

Through our volunteer programs, internationals connect with peacebuilding organizations through remote volunteer opportunities; collaborate to solve areas of scarcity in the field of civil society peacebuilding; and gain mentorship from experts in the fields of nonprofit work and peacebuilding.

Fellowships (Semester Model)

The Embodying Peace Fellowship is for university students at the undergraduate and graduate levels and recent graduates who are looking to invest deeply in grassroots peacebuilding. For three months, Fellows intern remotely with our partner organizations, build community through the study of civil society peacebuilding in Israel-Palestine, and collaborate with our network of mentors in order to propose solutions to issues of scarcity in the peacebuilding field. The Fellowship entails:

  • A skills-based, remote internship with one of our partner organizations in Israel-Palestine.
  • Studying and discussing bi-weekly educational curriculums geared towards advancing your understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the state of grassroots peacebuilding in the region today.
  • Participation in exclusive monthly webinars with leading scholars, activists, and professionals who are instrumental in this field.
  • Collaboration with like-minded fellows, mentors, and experienced alumni to assist and guide you in your personal peacebuilding journey and capstone projects.

Summer 2021 Fellowship

We are seeking to form a cohort of 5 to 10 undergraduate students for our 2-month Summer 2021 Fellowship. We welcome students of all backgrounds who are passionate about our work and are dedicated to participating in a robust summer program.
