History of CISV
We must start with the children." -- Dr. Doris Allen, founder
Our History
First Interchange of Great Britain and Germany, 1962
Our Chapter History
In the late 1980’s, a teenage boy helped his teacher move some office equipment when she asked him, “How would you like to go to Austria this summer?”
What We Do
CISV provides a range of unique, educational group activities, which develop cross-cultural understanding in children, youth and adults from around the world. By encouraging respect for cultural differences 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.
