Mission Statement

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

Description

Who We Are

We are a global community of dedicated volunteers, creating opportunities for all ages to experience the excitement and enrichment of cultural diversity through our educational programs. We are founded on our belief that peace is possible through friendship - and that the real difference can be made by starting with children.

Our values

  • Friendship
  • Inclusiveness
  • Enthusiasm
  • Engagement
  • Cooperation

CISV is a charitable, independent, non-political, volunteer organization promoting peace education and cross-cultural friendship.

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.

Our work focuses on the following key areas:

  1. We provide opportunities for individuals to learn by experience to live amicably with others irrespective of cultural background.
  2. We contribute through research to a science of international relations and non-violent conflict resolution.
  3. We cooperate with other organizations having similar purposes.
  4. We inspire people of all ages to strive for a more just and peaceful world.
