The program comes as a solution to the problem most U.S. chapters experience: a waning of interest in JBers aged 16 to 18 due to limited JC and Seminar spots. Often there is intense competition for these spots, and Fortnight is a chance for this age group to stay connected with CISV and the World!
Inspired by Canada, Fortnight is an engaging two-week domestic summer program that will be a little more affordable, a little less daunting and a whole bunch of fun.
In addition to content that will explore many new topics, such as what it means to be a U.S. citizen, cultural awareness, and American cultural history and diversity, the camp will also focus on community service. In a recent poll of JBers, 90% responded they would like to see a large community service component as well as educational content and CISV workshopping (not to mention good food!).
*Cost does not include transportation. Must be 16 or 17 for the full length of the program.
