Cincinnati CISV chapter

We are a global community of dedicated volunteers, creating opportunities for all ages to experience the excitement and enrichment of cultural diversity through our educational programs.  We are founded on our belief that peace is possible through friendship - and that the real difference can be made by starting with children.

A Message From Your JB Presidents:

The JB presidents would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the Regional Service Project and Activity Day!!! Both events were hugely successful.  We raised over $300 and baked 23 cakes for Our Daily Bread.  The next exciting JB event is the Regional Mini-Camp, which is three fantastic days of CISV fun hosted in Pittsburgh from 12/19 to 12/21.  This year’s theme is LEGOS so come “build” some friendship with our friends from across the East Midwest region.  It’s going to be super fun!!!!  The link to the pre-camp is below and can also be found, along with the registration information, at the CISV Pittsburgh website here .  RMC precamp here.

Thank you!!
