Board Members over the years have come from a wide variety of development and educational fields. Their experience includes contracting with UNICEF in Africa, endowed chairs in esteemed schools of business, former Peace Corps volunteers, MBAs, business owners, faculty in construction management, field managers for graduate programs in Social Work, and many other disciplines. Their history with Peacework and their expertise in a variety of fields inspires those who work with Peacework projects and partners around the world.

Peacework’s staff and field managers are a creative, inspiring, and dedicated team with global experience in many disciplines and aspects of development from community services to agriculture, health, business, technology, clean energy, education, and a host of partnerships around the world that make great things happen for sponsoring universities, colleges, NGOs, and corporations in the field! As partnerships with institutions and communities emerge, our team members put projects into action and provide the kind of planning, project implementation, risk support, and logistics required for successful international programs and applied studies abroad. Peacework is always looking for people with experience in specific countries, cultures, and fields as future managers and welcome your inquiry about working in that capacity.

COVID-19 has had many consequences for people around the world.  The coronavirus is not only a pervasive public health threat but has threatened financial survival and the most basic need, food.

Our COVID-19 response is two-fold.  Peacework will do everything possible to ensure the safety of program participants and local community partners for on-site projects and to inform partners of known risks.  We will also continue to support our international community partners who are facing dire economic effects as well as the pandemic threat.  Peacework and our global partners closely follow all applicable global, national, and local requirements for COVID-19 response and restrictions, including international and local travel and visa restrictions as well as access to local institutions.  Programs that can be operated in-person will follow stringent rules for monitoring distance and contact and local directions for engagement with schools and community organizations.  Online programs will support partners abroad in their efforts to follow safety guidelines and meet the humanitarian and health needs of their communities.  All programs will be coordinated with the sponsoring university or institution and their travel health and risk offices.  Peacework will also include COVID-19 response protocol in local health and medical resources.  Please contact us for how the COVID-19 response will affect each program.

Collaborate with us

In my 30+ year career, I have had the opportunity to work with countless organizations. The people of Peacework are among the most impressive professionals with whom I have had the honor to work alongside. We place great importance on quality, and Peacework's execution of the logistics and operations of our work in-country is evidence of their commitment to excellence.
