“This summer I did Village in Portugal. I loved all the friendships I made. We learned about human rights and how to prevent hunger and poverty. I am looking forward to the next CISV opportunity.” -Benjamin, age 11


Step Up Spain Returns to Jacksonville
“My Step Up was the best three weeks of my life. I loved the theme of Upgrading Human Rights. I made so many friends from all over the world, and I can’t wait for more CISV experiences!” -Sally, age 14.

“My first Step Up and CISV experience was too incredible for words. Being able to work with individuals from across the globe and foster an environment in which kids can blossom into young adults is indescribable. I wouldn’t change anything about my experience for the world!”
-Alexandra, leader of Spain Step Up.

Italy Step Up Reflects on Experience

“A half a year ago I did not know what CISV was or what those letters stood for; I can now not imagine my life without it. This camp experience taught me so much about myself and how truly big, and yet small, the world is.” – Austin, delegation leader.

Julia, age 15
