Peace First Fellows In Residence 2019 (Stipends Available)

Peace First

Peace First

Peace First is focused on creating and supporting a movement of young people to counteract the rising culture of violence, intolerance, and hatred that plagues too many communities. With the goal of true culture change top of mind, we aim to have at least 100,000 young people engaged with peacemaking work within the next two years.

A key element of our strategic plan is to build out our team of talented professionals. To that end, we are seeking individuals who are excited about working in an entrepreneurial, start-up-type environment where there is an immediate opportunity to have tangible impact on organizational direction and achievement.

If you are passionate about youth-led change, love mobilizing and empowering others to act, and want to be part of a global team that helps young people make a difference right now, we invite you to apply to the Fellowship-in-Residence – a year-long, paid program for emerging social change leaders who want to make an impact by leading Peace First’s support to young people in their part of the world.

Our team of Peace First Fellows-in-Residence will each be responsible for leading the delivery of these programs in their region – US & Canada, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia/Oceania. They’d receive support from the Director of the Fellows-in-Residence Program and our Program Design & Quality Team. They will act as ambassadors for Peace First in their region, managing a small budget with the goal of building our visibility, credibility, and sustainability. Fellows-in-Residence will also serve as key designers of Peace First programs, and support fundraising efforts by sharing their perspectives as young peacemakers and leaders on our program team to current or prospective investors in our Youth Investment Fund. If you’re passionate about the idea of helping young people make a difference, and excited about the everyday work of recruiting, coaching, and building relationships – with both a lot of autonomy and a lot of support – then this might be a perfect opportunity for you.

The Fellowship-in-Residence, a paid, year-long Fellowship with Peace First, is an unparalleled opportunity to build your skills and networks as an emerging leader — and set you up for a career of lifelong leadership for social change.

Build a diverse skill set: In your day-to-day work, you’ll hone your skills at program design, facilitation and training, grantmaking, organizing, and more. Fellows-in-Residence will also have opportunities to interact with and learn about the other operational areas of a global nonprofit, and regularly meet with and work alongside members of our senior team.

Build a network: As the lead ambassador for Peace First in your region, you’ll work to build our visibility and credibility by creating a broad and deep partner network — and, in the process, build your own network of peers and mentors.

Access support and coaching: The Director of the Fellows-in-Residence Program will be a constant source of support and feedback, and Fellows-in-Residence will have regular touch points with the Founder & CEO and other senior leaders of the Peace First team. Peace First will match each Fellow-in-Residence with an external mentor, who you’ll meet with biweekly to support your personal and professional growth.

Professional development stipend: Peace First will offer a professional development stipend to help you access professional development opportunities from conferences to continuing education.

Community of practice: We’ve structured the Fellowship-in-Residence as a community of practice – meaning that your fellow Fellows-in-Residence are a source of learning and support. Through in-person retreats and constant virtual communication, Fellows-in-Residence will build a tight-knit community, offering a space for you to work through challenges, share joys, process frustrations, brainstorm new ideas, learn new things, and feel supported, valued, and championed.
