While based on the same educational principles as CISV’s camp-based programs, Interchange encourages a deeper encounter between two cultures by placing young people within families.
Interchange takes place in two ‘phases’ – you and your family host a child from another country; then in return, your child joins a delegation that visits the other country and is hosted there by a CISV family.
Interchange gives your whole family the chance to experience another culture and make new friends, while being part of your local CISV community.
CISV Jacksonville has a long history of coordinating Interchanges –check out some recent ones:
With more than 40 years experience of organizing family-based exchanges for children and teenagers, you can be assured of the highest level of supervision and safety for your child. Read more about our child safety policy.
We are excited your child is participating in Interchange. Please e-mail us with any questions.
