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

Founded in 1950, CISV International is a global organization dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding. CISV offers seven international camp-based, family exchange and local community programs.

CISV Jacksonville is one of 20 CISV chapters in the United States and is celebrating 40 years of giving Jacksonville youth the experience of their lives and the opportunity to build lasting friendships through international educational programs.

We aim to help our participants develop the skills they need to become informed, responsible and active global citizens and make a difference in their communities and the world. The glue that underpins all of our programs is friendship, in line with our founding belief that peace is possible through friendship and mutual understanding.

Creating Peace. Growing Leaders. Having Fun.
