CISV is a unique independent, non-profit, non-political volunteer youth exchange organization that offers children and adults the opportunity to make new friendships worldwide and understand and appreciate different cultures. While CISV offers many different programs, the philosophy of CISV can be summarized as a commitment to know countries through close friendships rather than as abstract places on a map, and to accept other without prejudice or stereotypes.
Towards a peaceful society, CISV aims to prepare individuals to become active and contributing members of a peaceful global society. It encourages the development of friendly relationships, effective communication and leadership skills, and cooperative abilities towards a world that is both just and fair.
