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.

Our dedicated volunteers organize and deliver life-changing experiences through our range of camp, family, and community based programs to thousands of children and people every year.

Our National Associations (full-member Associations) and Promotional Associations (Associations in the process of gaining full membership) run our educational programs and co-operate internationally through their membership of CISV International.

CISV International assists and guides its associations by coordinating the international aspects of our programs, providing policy direction, expertise and infrastructure support.

Our Mission

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