Call for Applications to Join Rondine Program 2019/2021
The Association Rondine Cittadella della Pace, based in Italy, has been working for peace and dialogue for 20 years. Utilizing an original training approach, the program aims at promoting conflict transformation through the experience of young people coming from different cultures or conflict and post-conflict areas.
During a two-year experience, participants deconstruct the idea of the “enemy” and work actively to develop projects with social, political and economic impact in order to contribute to peaceful development in their own countries and in the world.
To achieve these results, students receive high quality trainings on topics connected to conflict management, as well as improve their communication skills and learn about the necessary methodologies needed to create concrete opportunities for development and reconciliation. In addition to this specific training, students develop their own professional and academic curriculum by obtaining a master’s degree or a specialization by high vocational education.
Selected young professionals will be awarded with a fully funded scholarship. Applicant should be aged 21-28, holder of a Bachelor degree, active in civil society and willing to spend two years of his/her life working on different topics related to the peace-building and conflict transformation through participation to different trainings and seminars, coupled with an academic program (a master degree or some other higher form of specialization).
