Welcome to CISV Jacksonville
Our chapter believes that the best way to learn about CISV is to hear from our youth and adult participants so please watch this introductory video.
Founded in 1950, CISV International is a global organization dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding. CISV offers seven international camp-based, family exchange and local community programs.
Founded in 1976, CISV Jacksonville Chapter is one of the chapters of CISV USA and is celebrating more than 40 years of giving Jacksonville youth the experience of their lives and the opportunity to build lasting friendships through international and local educational programs.
We aim to help our participants develop the skills they need to become informed, responsible and active global citizens and make a difference in their communities and the world. The glue that underpins all of our programs is friendship, in line with our founding belief that peace is possible through friendship and mutual understanding.
