About us

CISV Germany is part of a global movement for peace in 70 countries, in over 200 towns and cities.

Founded over 60 years ago, CISV is a global movement dedicated to educating and inspiring action for peace. We believe that we can help change the world by providing life changing experiences and building friendships that last a lifetime.

We offer an exciting blend of seven educational programmes and amazing volunteer opportunities for the young and the young at heart. Our fun, ‘learning by doing’ programmes begin with our original Village, a four-week residential camp for 11-year-olds.

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.

Our Chapters also have youth-led groups called Junior Branch, which is a vibrant international movement within CISV.
