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!

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:

• Facilitation
• Leadership
• Organization
• Interpersonal skills
• Teamwork
• Problem-solving


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.
