Children's International Summer Village (CISV) is a volunteer organization with representation in over 45 countries worldwide. The organization was formed in 1951 by Dr. Doris Allen, a psychologist at the University of Cincinnati. Her premise was that teaching children to live together as friends could create true and lasting global peace.
CISV has grown exponentially since 1951 and in the last year alone there were 197 international programmes with 7,999 participants.
These opportunities foster a respect for cultural differences, help identify common values and develop self awareness. CISV empowers each participant to incorporate these values into their lives as they become global citizens.
Learn more about CISV at the CISV International and CISV Canada websites.
