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


CISV International is a global organization dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding. Founded in 1950, today we are a federation of 70 Member Associations with over 200 Chapters or local groups. In over 60 years we have given countless children and young people the experience of their lives and the opportunity to build lasting friendships through our international educational programs.

 Friendship – Inclusiveness – Enthusiasm – Engagement – Cooperation
