Taking part in a CISV educational program will have a powerful and positive impact on your child for life. He or she will make lasting friendships with other children from around the world in a fun, safe environment.

The positive impact of making friends with children from other countries and cultures cannot be overestimated. Your child will gain a global perspective and come to understand his or her part in our global community.

While we put an emphasis on fun and friendship, at the core of everything we do is our aim to educate and inspire young people to realise their full potential. The curriculum in each of our programs is age-appropriate and delivered using our informal, ‘learning by doing’ approach.

Participation in one of our programs is often a powerful experience.  Your child may come back from his or her activity with many stories to tell and also a bit different. Many times taking part in CISV has a positive effect on the whole family.  So CISV is not just for children; instead the experience often involves the whole family – it is a complete family experience.

CISV will help your child develop an ‘anything is possible’ attitude, leadership and communication skills and an understanding of the world around them.
