Seeking a JB Advisor!
We are seeking an advisor for our Junior Branch. Ideally this person would have a background in CISV, a passion for peace education, and a willingness to work alongside our Local Junior Representatives.
The CISV book club will be reading the book Caste by Isabel Wilkerson. Former International and CISV USA President, Brett Vottero will be facilitating the discussion on Monday, November 9th at 8pm EST.
We are pleased to announce that Nate Smith, a former Junior Branch president, has filled the newly created chapter position of Junior Branch Programs Coordinator. To help the Junior Branch remain a cohesive and active organization amidst the pandemic, Nate will be working to maintain strong communication among Junior Branch members and assisting the Junior Branch executive committee with planning events and activities that are virtual or performed within Covid-19 guidelines. Nate can be reached here.
Hello CISV family and friends,
I hope that everyone is in the swing of school and fall routines in all of their new and unusual shapes and sizes.
Next weekend is the annual CISV USA meeting. This typically involves hundreds of CISVers traveling across the USA to gather for three days of collaboration, learning and planning. This year, a representative from each chapter will be participating in this annual meeting from his or her home, via a virtual platform. While the venue and the entire experience will be quite different, the collaboration, learning, planning, and dedication to peace education will continue.
A traditional part of this annual meeting is the selection of international programs for the upcoming year. CISV USA has decided to delay this at this time. Although it is uncertain if 2021 will be a year to participate in CISV’s international programs, the organization is planning for the possibility, and plans to hold this selection event at a later date.
We won’t hold our traditional information nights this fall, but instead will be using our website, cincinnati.cisvusa.org, to share news about CISVCincinnati and upcoming programming and events. This is a great time to visit all of the resources and information on our website – it is the best place to find current information about all things CISVCincinnati.

Peace and wellness,
Please read the attached message from the new leaders of the Cincinnati Junior Branch!
