US Board of Trustees Openings

Peace Direct is a dynamic and growing organization poised to deepen our impact and expand our reach in the year ahead. We work with local people in 15 countries around the world, including the United States, to stop violent conflict and build lasting peace. We advocate to shift power, decision-making, and resources for building peace to local communities. We strive to exemplify our core values: respect, nonviolence, trust, courage, and inclusivity.

US Board members provide strategic direction to advance Peace Direct’s mission, ensure strong financial oversight, help mobilize funds, and promote the organization with a US public audience. The US Board meets quarterly virtually or in person, often in conjunction with Peace Direct’s UK Board of Trustees. Peace Direct US is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization and an affiliate of Peace Direct in the UK. US Board members serve on a voluntary basis for a 3-year term, with the potential for one term renewal.

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion:

Peace Direct is committed to building a vibrant, equitable and inclusive organization. We actively strive to bring a diversity of voices, skills and experience to our Board. We welcome applicants from different ethnic, racial, economic, sexual orientation, gender identity and religious backgrounds. Individuals with lived experience of conflict and peacebuilding are particularly invited to apply.

Deadline to apply: January 31, 2022.

Please send a curriculum vitae, resume, or LinkedIn profile, along with a cover letter explaining your interest in board service, to Christine Trillana: [email protected].
