What we do
CISV provides a range of unique, educational group activities, which develop cross-cultural understanding in children, youth and adults from around the world. By encouraging respect for cultural differences and the development of self-awareness, CISV empowers each participant to incorporate these values into their lives as they become global citizens and strive for a more peaceful world.
Each year, we offer two travel programs for youth: A village for 11 year olds, and an interchange for 13-14 year olds. Both programs are held in countries around the world and change each year. We also have several programs available for teenagers, young people 21+, and even adults! To find the program that’s right for you, take a look at this year’s programs!
