Become a CPTer

Interested in serving with CPT?

Apply to join CPT’s “Peacemaker Corps." Trained Peacemaker Corps members serve as part of a team building partnerships to transform violence and oppression in situations of lethal conflict around the world.

But wait! Before you apply to join the Corps, make sure to participate in a CPT delegation!
Learn about our upcoming delegations here.

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.

Applicants must be 21 years of age or older and have participated in, or plan to participate in, a short-term CPT Delegation. Qualified applicants may be invited to participate in CPT’s intensive, month-long training where membership in the Peacemaker Corps is discerned. Trained Peacemaker Corps members are eligible to apply for open positions on CPT teams.
