Volunteer with CISV
CISV is a global, volunteer-led organization committed to working for a more just and peaceful world. We do this through a commitment to local and global community service.
Every year, our dedicated and passionate volunteers of all ages give their expertise, skills, life experience, energy, and time to run our Chapter, programmes, and Junior Branche. Whether you’re 16 or 60, you can offer an hour or two every month or give a more regular commitment. There are many exciting and flexible ways for you to get involved with CISV.
Our activities and programmes simply could not happen without our committed volunteers.
Come and join us!
Programmes & Events
Throughout the year we require volunteers to supervise and help run CISV events and programmes. These short-term volunteer positions are an easy way to dip your toes in the water of volunteering with CISV!
Current Volunteer Opportunities:
Mini Camp - October 18-20, 2019 - short shifts
Parents! Earn your volunteer hours with a short shift at Mini Camp. The Junior Branch is responsible for running activities, so you just need to be onsite in case of emergency. This is a fun and easy way to help meet your volunteer requirements for the year.
Adult volunteers must be at least 21 years old and will need to provide a copy of their criminal record check to our risk managers. If you are new to CISV and do not have a CRC, an online application can be forwarded.
Board of Directors
The CISV Toronto board organizes and runs our local and international programmes, runs local activities, and recruits new members.
We are always pleased to welcome new volunteers to help with their regular work – fundraising, marketing, training, and recruitment. Whatever skills and interest you have and however much time you are able to offer, we are interested in hearing from you!
Become a Leader
CISV leaders volunteer their time to support a group of delegates through a life-changing travel experience. You’ll be responsible for providing supervision and care for participants during travel and throughout the programme as well as planning and participating in activities and educational content.
The most exciting aspect of volunteering with CISV is the opportunity to meet other CISV volunteers and children in your community and from around the world, and make friendships for life. But you will also be building your own skills in:
• Interpersonal skills
Plus, you get a free trip to another part of the world, with many chances to connect deeply with the culture and people.
CISV Toronto leaders are carefully selected from applicants who are 21 or over, demonstrate a strong interest in the goals and philosophy of CISV and have the maturity and experience to handle the responsibilities assigned to them
