ORGANIZATION: Peace Through Action USA

  • 6 people are interested

Peace Through Action USA wishes to augment and diversify its mission leadership and governing body-the board of directors.

This is an exciting moment in our organization’s life to join our leadership body. We have completed our formation, are delivering our mission in earnest ... and planning our future.

We invite people willing to add their energy and talent to our board of directors to apply for a director position. We accept applications for director positions on a rolling basis.

The full position announcement, position description, and position application are posted at https://peacethroughaction.org/volunteer.

Our board of directors is a governing body, not a "working board." Directors engage in strategic thinking, oversight and monitoring, and resources connecting. The board of directors elects the organization’s directors. Directors serve initial two-year terms with the possibility of serving subsequent terms. The board of directors meets quarterly and convenes remotely.

We welcome applications from anyone with interest in increasing peace, bridging differences, and promoting social harmony in the United States. We especially encourage people with one or more of the following experiences to apply.

  • People who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color
  • People with a youth or young adult perspective
  • People of all abilities
  • People with corporate civic engagement experience
  • People with high net social capital
  • People with high net financial capital.

We aspire to achieve and maintain an organization culture and practice of equal opportunity and disability inclusion. We do not discriminate against any person on the basis of any actual or perceived protected trait of such person. We provide reasonable accommodation to people with disabilities and encourage such people to request accommodation at any point in time. To do so, please complete and return an Accommodation Request Form available at https://peacethroughaction.org/volunteer.
