We are pleased to announce that the ICTE is now accepting applications for the 2008-09 cycle of its International Guest Program. Many of you have already met with our International Guests in the past and know the outstanding individuals we select for this unique opportunity.
For those of you who are not familiar, each 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, we are placing a special emphasis on “Scholars and Practitioners in the field of Tolerance Education”. Therefore, we are reaching out to all of you 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 are attached to this e-mail, and can also be found on our website: http://www.seedsoftolerance.org/fgp.html.
The deadline for applications is January 21st, 2008. Please circulate this information, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
