CPT INTERNATIONAL: Train with CPT – Join CPT’s Peacemaker Corps
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 completed, or plan to complete, a short-term CPT Delegation or internship. Qualified applicants may be invited to participate in CPT’s intensive, month-long training from 13 July – 13 August 2017 in Chicago, Illinois USA where membership in the Peacemaker Corps is discerned. Trained Peacemaker Corps members are then eligible to apply for open positions on CPT teams.
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.
