“This year’s interchange to Graz, Austria
is one of my favorite CISV experiences so far!
I loved making new friends from both chapters,
seeing the beautiful country of Austria, and
sharing our home and culture with the Graz delegates.“
— Ian, Interchange delegate
“Having the chance to live with a wonderful family in Austria
and get immersed in their culture
was an experience I will never forget.
It was icing on the cake
to get to show my delegate
the same hospitality at home.
I made lifelong friends through the program
and look forward to doing it again next summer!“
— Casey, Interchange delegate
“The friends I made,
made this interchange an experience of a lifetime.“

“Representing USA in Italy this summer with CISV Step Up
taught me more about cultural and global perspectives
and how I can relate to people my age all over the world.”
— Tula, Step Up delegate
“This experience at Step Up made me appreciate
all that we have in the United States.
Personally, it was a life-changing dream. ”
– – Luke, Step Up delegate
“How do I sum up a whole month in a few sentences?
The connections I made with the people in Denmark
will make a lasting impact on my life and
I hope to apply the lessons I learned in the coming years.”
— Kate, Step Up delegate
“My step-up experience in Denmark was everything I could’ve asked for and more. I have so many amazing memories from step-up, but one of my favourites is the day of gala night! We made the camp video that day, which was a lot of fun to create, and everyone chipped in to pick flowers, clean, and get the campsite ready for Gala Night. We had s’mores, cards, snacks, dancing, and a great time overall!”
— Ava, Step Up delegate

“Being a JC was such an incredible experience.
It was so much fun leading activities
with the other JCs, leaders, and staff,
and witnessing all of the children build global friendships,
making memories to last a lifetime.”

and I am honored to have shared it with
such incredible people from around the world.
Never in my life have I become so close so fast
with a group of my peers and
being able to grow with them,
laugh with them, cry with them,
and just be with them
was a tremendous honor.
I wish the camp had been three times longer and
I will forever be grateful to CISV for giving me the opportunity
to learn so much about myself and the world we live in.”
– Tyler, Tennessee Seminar Delegate“I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The lack of preordained structure allows for real creativity
on the part of the participants, which I really appreciated.”
– Nico, Belo Horizonte Brazil Seminar Delegate
Belo Horizonte, Brazil
