CISV is an international, independent, unprejudiced, non-political volunteer organization promoting peace education and cross-cultural friendship around the youth of the world.
We are a community of dedicated volunteers; our programs are catered to specific age brackets and aim to empower participants to incorporate the values gained through CISV activities into their daily lives as they become active and contributing citizens in a global society.
CISV programs operate in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Universal declaration of Human Rights, The UN declaration of the Rights of the Child, and UNESCO’s recommendation concerning Education for International Understanding.
The main CISV programs revolve around the following:
• Villages – Interchange Visits – Seminar Camps – Summer Camps – International Youth Meetings – International People’s Project – Mosaic & the Junior Branch
Taking part in a CISV educational programme is an experience that will have a powerful and positive impact on your child for life. They will have the opportunity to make lasting friendships with other children from around the world in a fun, safe environment.
The positive impact of meeting and making friends with children from other countries and cultures cannot be overestimated. Your child will gain a global perspective and come to understand their part in our global community.
While we put an emphasis on fun and friendship, at the core of everything we do is our aim to educate and inspire young people to realise their full potential. The curriculum in each of our programmes is age-appropriate and delivered using our informal, ‘learning by doing’ approach. We will help your child to develop an ‘anything is possible’ attitude, leadership and communication skills and an understanding of the world around them.
