All CISV educational programmes are organized and run by dedicated volunteers. We aim to help our participants of all ages to develop the skills they need to take a lead and make a positive difference.
At the heart of everything we do is friendship, in line with our founding belief that peace is possible through friendship and mutual understanding.

Attend Information Day
Come learn what CISV is all about and get all your questions answered.
How do I find out which programs are available?
Come out to our Information Day, which will be held on October 1st, 2023. That’s when we introduce prospective members to CISV, explain the selection process and review the various programs we’ll be participating in for the following year. After Information Day, you have several weeks to ask questions and think about whether you want to apply for a program.
How do we apply for a CISV Program?
An application form will be available on the website through the link above. You can also email email@example.com for a link. Part of the application process involves an interview and get-to-know session in late November during the "Selections Day". Both the applicant and family should attend this session in order to be considered for a program. You must also be a CISV Toronto member in order to apply for a program. If you missed Selections Day, please reach out to us as additional program spots often still open up during the winter and spring.
Is there anything we should do before applying?
Spend some time discussing the goals of CISV with your child so that they have an idea of what we’re all about. For youth not familiar with CISV, or overnight camps, a great way to become comfortable with traveling away from parents for a long summer camp is to join the Junior Branch CISVers at their fall and spring Minicamps. Typically, these run from Friday night to Sunday midday. Parents of prospective delegates are also encouraged to familiarize themselves both with costs and the important roles they play before a delegation travels. Parents help us make it all possible by fully committing to delegation meetings, as well as a range of other events hosted by the Chapter.
How are delegates selected?
Potential delegates and their families are observed and interviewed during Selections Day for program suitability.
