CPT’s Peacemaker Corps training POSTPONED indefinitely


26 June 2020

Due to the uncertainties associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, Christian Peacemaker Teams has POSTPONED INDEFINITELY the Peacemaker Corps Training originally scheduled to take place from 12 November – 11 December 2020.

We will continue to assess conditions worldwide in order to determine when we can hold the training in a way that maximizes safety for everyone (local hosts, partners, teams, training participants and trainers) and inclusion of all candidates coming from many places around the globe.  We will announce new training dates and application deadlines as soon as we can meet our safety and inclusion criteria.

We recognize that cancelling many CPT Delegations during the pandemic creates a challenge for fulfilling this training prerequisite.  Improved conditions that allow delegations to resume will be an indicator for scheduling a future Peacemaker Corps Training.

In the meantime, there are many ways to stay engaged and support the work of CPT.  Visit cptaction.org to find informative webinars and important action campaigns.  The Palestine program will continue welcoming interns whenever their work on the ground resumes.  Please send your internship application to Program Support Coordinator Mona el-Zuhairi at monazuhairi@cpt.org.   

CPT receives applications for membership in the Peacemaker Corps year round.  Visit our website to find out more about becoming a CPTer.
