Benefits of Volunteering

Take a delegation of children to a camp in Brazil, and you’ll not only enrich the kids’ lives, but your own as well! By the end of the camp you will have met many exciting CISV volunteers and children from across the planet, and made friendships for life. In CISV you gain unforgettable experiences while volunteering.

If you are studying education, international business or, for example, international relations or just looking for something meaningful to do in your spare time, volunteering for CISV will add a whole new dimension to your studies and expand your world-view.

But that’s not all. While you have a fun time volunteering for CISV, you will also be building your own skills and competencies. Since all volunteers take part in essential training and preparation in the run-up to the programs, you can gain many skills in running CISV activities. Here’s a list of just a few:

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