Prague Interchange Back from Busy Times

“My most favorite CISV experience was the interchange this year because I made so many friends.I made friends in our delegation, the Czech delegations, and even the German and Swedish delegations we met during minicamps. We laughed all the time and learned valuable information.”
– Bella, Interchange delegate, age 12.

Jumping shot

“I was new to CISV and a bit nervous to be leading an interchange, but I had a great group of kids and a co-leader who made it a phenomenal experience for me.   We shared so many laughs and memories and became a big, crazy family. They showed me exactly what it means to be a part of CISV and I am thrilled to have had this opportunity.” – Brittney, Interchange Leader

Sweden Interchange Finishes the Travel Phase 
Allison, leader of the Swedish Interchange says, “Our interchange was thoroughly uniting. Everyone came together as one big family, and that’s what I cherish the most.”


“My favorite times were going with the group in a casual setting and getting to know a new group of friends.” – Jack, Swedish Interchange Delegate

JC to Belgium Village Builds Global Friendships

“Being a JC was one of the best experiences I have ever had.  I connected so much with the kids, leaders and other JCs.  At the end of camp, I felt like I had a whole new family, living all around the world.” – Emily, JC from CISVJax.

Denver Youth Meeting Delegate
Explores Human Rights on a Mountainside


“This is my first Youth Meeting, and it was even better than I could ever possibly imagine! I made 29 incredibly close friends from 13 countries around the world in only two weeks, I experienced an entirely new piece of the country that I call home, and I learned so much about different cultures, foods, lifestyles, and just about people in general. I wish I could go back and stay there forever!” -Raya, age 16
