The Peace Alliance and Peace Alliance Educational Institute are looking for staff leadership to help usher our organization, and thus the world, forward.
We are looking for someone who can help amplify and make more visible our peacebuilding advocacy work, including the Blueprint for Peace which elevates proven solutions for enhancing personal and interpersonal development, empowering community interventions, teaching peace in schools, humanizing justice systems and fostering international peace.

We believe that the fastest way to change the world is to change the stories that we tell. The most important story in this moment is that we already have the tools available to create communities that are more peaceful, inclusive and thriving.
