About Us

CISV educates and inspires action for a more just and peaceful world.

Founded over 60 years ago, CISV is a global movement dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace. We believe that we can help change the world by providing life-changing experiences and building friendship that last a lifetime.

We offer an exciting blend of seven educational programmes and amazing volunteer opportunities for the young and the young at heart. Our fun, 'learning by doing' programmes begin with our original and unique Village, a four-week residential camp for 11-year-olds.

All of our programmes and activities are organized and run by our dedicated volunteers – the lifeblood of CISV. We aim to help our participants of all ages to develop the skills they need to take a lead and make a positive difference. At the heart of everything we do is friendship, in line with our founding belief that peace is possible through friendship and mutual understanding.

Our National Associations are in 70 countries and often comprise a number of local CISV organizations, called “Chapters” in cities, towns or regions. The national affiliates are brought together through membership in CISV International – the umbrella organization responsible for broad policies and international coordination.
