Volunteers are needed from September 2nd – 12th 2008 – VSI (Voluntary Service International) together with Tides Training in Northern Ireland and several organisations from Israel, are running a special peace building project in Northern Ireland from September 2nd – 12th next.

The participants have considerable experience in the various strands of this peace building work – peace organisations, NGOs, cross-community work, youth work, human advocacy work, dialogue work, etc… Those participants from the Republic and Northern Ireland have a good working knowledge of the conflict in Israel / Palestine as well as practical experience in these various fields. VSI are seeking ten participants, (5 from the Republic, 5 from Northern Ireland) with some experience of peace building/ conflict resolution to take part in the project.

The Orientation Weekend is the first step in the preparation and training of potential volunteers and provides an opportunity for those interested to explore the possibility of joining a field team; it is designed as an informative and enjoyable weekend for anyone wanting to learn more about the work of PBI, both in Britain and abroad, and as a general introduction to PBI’s philosophy, aims and work, and to explore issues such as non-violence, consensus decision-making and conflict resolution through discussions, role-plays, team exercises, workshops and games.
