Junior Branch

The Junior Branch is a global movement that offers opportunities for youth to develop attitudes, skills and knowledge through educational initiatives that contribute to the mission and vision of CISV.


The very heart and soul of CISV, Junior Branch is made up of local CISVers between the ages of 11 - 18.  The JB is a self-governing group that organizes educational activities and support Peace Education campaigns and events throughout the year. 


Anyone is welcome to join the JB, whether you have taken part in a CISV programme before or not!

Junior Branch offers opportunities for youth to develop attitudes, skills and knowledge through educational initiatives.
