Your participation in a CISV program is not simply a holiday pastime. CISV is more. Get to know a small part of the world, exchange experiences with peers, learn about foreign cultures, develop your personality, become independent, develop a stronger awareness of global issues, and improve your English skills by the way. Each CISV program is based on tried and tested concepts of "experiental learning", which means that you gain new experiences and adapt to new skills – in your own way.
Villages and Step Ups also include stays with host families with no additional costs, since the host families also host the delegates voluntarily and for the sake of the idea.
