The Peace Leadership Program provides an opportunity to learn and practice skills that can help individuals effectively wage peace. First and foremost, we seek to develop peace leadership skills that will help achieve a world free of nuclear weapons. The Peace Leadership Program offers innovative training in leadership, interpersonal communication, and conflict resolution. The program also offers inspiration, guidance, resources, and a community of people dedicated to creating a saner and safer future. The Peace Leadership Program will help people learn the art and science of waging peace so that individuals can better serve humanity, protect the planet, and make a difference in our world.
In 2012, we will promote peace leadership skills and ideals through lectures and workshops around the United States, as well as a one-week summer workshop in Santa Barbara, California, for 30 people.
The Foundation provides internship positions for select college students during the academic year to work with staff on current peace and security issues. Interns conduct research, write analysis of issues, work on the websites, and gain valuable insights into the nuclear policy field. During the summer, the Foundation offers three full-time paid internships to deserving students through a competitive application process. Students work at our Santa Barbara office.
