Atlantic Promise Field Training Simulation For Conflict Resolution, Humanitarian, And Peacebuilding Graduate Students, March 16-19, 2017, Fellsmere, Florida, USA, Registration Closes 2/6

The Atlantic Promise Field Training Exercise (FTX) is designed to prepare graduate students in conflict resolution, humanitarian assistance, and peacebuilding programs for work in zones of conflict and disaster prone arenas. Offered for nearly 16 years, it is sponsored by the Forage Center for Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Education, Inc. FTX Atlantic Promise is the only program designed specifically for graduate students that works directly with faculty to provide students with an experience that replicates working in the field. The program is 3 1/2 days long and is held in Fellsmere, Florida, USA (with airline access from Orlando and West Palm Beach). The program emphasizes working in civ-mil environments, engaging with local populations, refugee support, negotiation in hostile environments, and promoting peacebuilding opportunities with groups impacted by conflict and disasters. The tuition for students is $625.00, making it affordable for those on a limited budget.

To date, over 500 graduate and undergraduate students have attended the exercise. The exercise has been supported by the U.S. Institute of Peace and United Service Foundation. Universities participating recently include George Mason University, University of North Carolina-Greensboro, Tulane University, Nova Southeastern University, and Kennesaw State University.
