We are in need of some incredible adults (minimum aged 21, as of July 2019) to lead our delegations and enjoy the experience of a lifetime!
WHO MAKES A GREAT LEADER?

– wants to travel and meet new people;

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. We carefully select leader candidates based on many different factors, but they do not have to have experience as a camp leader or educator. We welcome anyone into our CISV family and we will match them with their perfect role, while providing all of the training they need. Also, leaders have ZERO expenses – which makes volunteering with us simple and cost-free.
Leaders can simply get involved locally, or apply to travel with a delegation of 4 youth to any of the following 2019 programs:
1. Village (11 yr olds): Kansai, Japan – July 28 to Aug 24
2. Village (11 yr olds): Mexico City – July 5 to Aug 1
