Mission Statement

CISV is an international volunteer-run organization that promotes peace education for youth starting at age 11 years so that we can build a more peaceful world. We deliver experiential learning focused on 4 core educational themes--sustainable development, conflict and resolution, human rights, and diversity.

Description

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.
