The Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding is a secular, non-sectarian nonprofit that promotes mutual respect with practical programs that bridge religious difference and combat prejudice in schools, workplaces, health care settings and areas of armed conflict.
They are currently seeking volunteers for their 2019 Peacemakers in Action Working Retreat, from Saturday, July 27-Friday, August 2, in Stony Point, NY. Volunteers will join the Peacemakers at their Retreat and help make it a success by supporting the week-long program. Volunteers will commit to managing logistical needs for each day of the retreat. Tanenbaum will cover the cost of room and board at Stony Point Center (including three meals per day) throughout the course of the week. Some volunteer tasks will include assisting Peacemakers with their travel to and from the retreat, taking notes during sessions, set up support, handling multimedia needs for presenters, and cleaning up after sessions.
Since the late 1990s, Tanenbaum has worked to identify, support, and document the work of religiously-motivated peace activists. Today, the Network includes 28 living Peacemakers of various faith traditions. During the retreat, Peacemakers from all over the world will gather for a week of private collaborative training, community-building and planning for peace in some of the world’s most intractable conflicts.
- Commit to 10-14 hours per day from Saturday, July 27-Friday, August 2
- Attend Tanenbaum’s volunteer orientation (date and location to be determined)
