Lead a delegation or staff a camp

Take a delegation of children to a camp in Brazil or help staff a camp, and you’ll not only help enrich their lives, but  your own as well! By the end of the camp you will have met many exciting CISV volunteers and children from around the world, and made friendships for life.

You will be part of a team of committed, like-minded volunteers working to create an unforgettable experience for the children or young people in your care. You will have the support and leadership of our highly experienced staff. You will help children and young people develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to take a positive, active role in their local and global community. You will guide them as they build friendships, have fun and learn from you and each other.

About you

You are aged 21 or over and have a positive and open attitude towards cultures other than your own. You know that learning is a life-long process and that you can gain as much from the CISV experience as our program participants. You share our belief that we can all play our part in making the world a better place. You will be free to travel and able to commit to 2 to 4 weeks in a residential camp and the essential training and preparation needed beforehand.

We offer you

Full training and support, a fun, supportive, inter-cultural environment and the opportunity to enhance your CV and develop your personal skills.

While you have a fun time volunteering for CISV, you will also be building your own skills and competencies. Since all volunteers take part in essential training and preparation in the run-up to the programs, you can gain many skills in running CISV activities. Here’s a list of just a few:

  • Facilitation
  • Leadership
  • Organization
  • Communication
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Teamwork
  • Problem-solving

Join our global community of volunteers working towards common goals – and make a difference!

In addition to the programs below, CISV Pittsburgh is hosting an international Village program. Apply now if you’re interested in a staff position for this program.
