All program fees must be paid in full before departure or your child may not be permitted to travel with his/her delegation.Other costs that would be incurred but are not included in the fees are:
-Air fare and other travel costs for delegate

Preparing for a CISV International program is important in the months leading up to the program and requires time and parental involvement with the entire delegation including the leaders. This requires a commitment to the group’s preparation meaning making CISV Vancouver your top priority over other extra-curricular activities. This preparation is integral to ensuring all members of the delegation are ready to travel together to the program location (and return) as enthusiastic representatives of Canada and CISV Vancouver.
CISV is an entirely volunteer driven organization. Our ability to offer international programs comes through a reciprocal arrangement in hosting CISV programs in Canada. As a volunteer organization we will need your support. Parents of child delegates are expected to participate and support the local CISV chapter following the return of the delegation. This will ensure our viability and ability to offer our kids an amazing CISV experience in future.
PLEASE APPLY HERE for the Village, Youth Meeting, Step Up, Interchange, or JC programs ONLY.
