ICTE Seeks Human Rights Activists

Human rights leaders and peace educators have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to particiate in the International Center for Tolerance Education’s International Guest Program for 2008-09. ICTE just announce that the deadline for applications for their 2008-09 cycle is January 21, 2008.

Eeach year the International Guest Program welcomes 20-25 human rights leaders and peace educators primarily from the Global South. These activists come for a 2-3 month residency in Brooklyn, working within the ICTE community. The program aims to support each guest’s commitment to empowering local communities in the promotion of tolerance, human rights, respect for diversity and social justice. Individualized work plans are created with the guests that involve networking, professional skills training, opportunities to present their work, and time to reflect on their ongoing efforts.

This year, ICTE is placing a special emphasis on “Scholars and Practitioners in the field of Tolerance Education.” Therefore, they are reaching out to people in the field and in academia. Please pass these guidelines along to your colleagues who you feel are interested and qualified for the program. The guidelines can be found on their website: http://www.seedsoftolerance.org/fgp.html.

The deadline for applications is January 21st, 2008.
