Position description

Idealism, vision and action are the characteristics that young people bring into every community. The Global Youth Village (GYV) started in 1979, with a need and a dream. A group of parents dreamed of a camp bringing young people together from around the world. Forty years later, 80 teens from more than 15 countries continue to gather each summer for dynamic workshops teaching leadership, tolerance and dialogue, as well time for sports, arts and summer fun. Critical issues are addressed with inspiring role models and young global leaders. Cultural programming and cooperative living help participants learn to respect differences and discover similarities that transcend cultural, religious, political, and language barriers. 2019 highlights include youth delegations from Egypt, Mexico, Turkey and UK.

LivingSideBySide (Dialogue & Peace Building) Workshop Instructor: Provide a personal exploration of conflict, prejudice, and discrimination for youths from a variety of background and cultures. This workshop includes practical training in conflict management and leadership skills, as well as an exploration of prejudice and ethnic conflicts. Professional skills and experience are required in facilitation, group dynamics, conflict resolution, prejudice reduction, social/emotional learning, and methods of training in the value of diversity. Applicants are expected to have previous professional teaching and facilitation experience. Experience in curriculum design, experiential training methods, and working with multicultural groups is also required. (This is not an entry level teaching position!)
