We are a global community of dedicated volunteers, creating opportunities for all ages to experience the excitement and enrichment of cultural diversity through our educational programs. We are founded on our belief that peace is possible through friendship - and that the real difference can be made by starting with children.

CISV provides a range of unique, education group activities, which develop cross-cultural understanding in children, youth and adults from around the world. By encouraging respect for cultural difference and the development of self-awareness, CISV empowers each participant to incorporate these values into their lives as they become global citizens and strive for a more peaceful world.


*Leaders Needed* At this time we require leaders (ages 21+) for our Village, Interchange, and Step up delegations.  We are interviewing candidates in January. This means you will need to complete our Leadership Application Form to indicate your interest in this exciting opportunity! If you or someone you know is interested, please get in touch at leadership.cisvwaterloo@gmail.com.
