Peace Camp Canada Seeking Dialogue Facilitator

Peace Camp Canada (www.peacecampcanada.org) works to bring together exceptional Palestinian and Israeli youth (aged 16-18), for two weeks of intensive dialogue, leadership building and personal development on the grounds of St. Francis College in Nova Scotia. Peace Camp Canada is a youth for youth initiative that prides itself on the quality and scope of its facilitation, on its balanced leadership and governance structures, and on the Canadian moral and civic values it seeks to instill in its campers.

The main role of the Palestinian Dialogue Facilitator is to work in collaboration with the Israeli Dialogue Facilitator together in implementing the Peace Camp Canada dialogue facilitation curriculum that has been used in the last four camp sessions. Dialogue facilitation takes place everyday for three hours throughout the two week camp session. Main responsibilities include:

  • Participate in Icebreaker activities the first two days of camp
  • Work collaboratively with the Israeli Dialogue co-facilitator to prepare for each day’s three hour dialogue workshop
  • Co-facilitate all dialogue sessions
  • Direct other camp staff and volunteer counselors in who assist in the facilitation sessions
  • Meet daily with other staff members to debrief dialogue sessions
  • Attend all staff meetings each evening to debrief the entire day’s activities
  • Attend all camp field trips and participate in all camp events
  • Assist in program evaluation at the end of the camp session

Qualified applicants will have extensive experience in dialogue facilitation specifically with Palestinian and Israeli youth, strong interest and experience in peacebuilding, a commitment to a youth empowerment model, and fluency in English. Candidates who are Palestinian, Muslim, or Arab are strongly encouraged to apply. Call 613-220-7946 and/ or send a resume and cover letter to Elan Divon at elandiv@hotmail.com by August 9, 2007. Please be prepared to provide three professional references.
