CISV is a volunteer-led organization committed to working for a more just and peaceful world. We do this through building friendship and a commitment to local and global community service in our participants.

Every year, our dedicated and passionate volunteers of all ages give their expertise, skills, life experience, energy and time to run our chapter, programs and Junior Branch. Our activities and programs simply could not happen without our committed volunteers. There are opportunities for volunteers of all ages – We can always use your help!***

 We hosted 23 kids from 12 countries for 21 days!  It was truly a successful, memorable camp and we could not have done it without the time and effort of all the volunteers.  Please check out our THANK YOU AND WRAP UP page!

Local Programs: If you are a youth member, consider getting involved in our Junior Branch or Mosaic program as there are many opportunities to help lead local activities.

Junior Counsellors: If you are 16 or 17 years, consider applying to be a Junior Counsellors (JCs) who lead our younger participants in their daily adventures at our international camps. They play an important role in helping their group of participants become a team and make sure that each day is exciting, educational and safe. JCs get valuable training before the camp and ongoing support and training throughout the camp from the Program Directors and their staff.

Being a JC is a great first-time work opportunity, where you get to take responsibility and develop your leadership, team working and other personal skills. As a CISV JC, you will interact with children and young teens, help with activities and serve as leaders in maintaining the CISV camp spirit and motivation. Most importantly, you will serve as a role model for our young participants.

If you are 21 or older, consider taking a delegation of children to a camp or help staff a camp, and you'll not only help enrich their lives, but your own as well! By the end of the camp you will have met many exciting CISV volunteers and children from around the world, and made friendships for life.

You will be part of a team of committed, like-minded volunteers working to create an unforgettable experience for the children or young people in your care. You will have the support and leadership of our highly experienced staff. You will help children and young people develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to take a positive, active role in their local and global community. You will guide them as they build friendships, have fun and learn from you and each other.
