Joining CISV Victoria

CISV Victoria operates on a year round basis providing peace education and working to develop intercultural competence in a way that can directly benefit the local community.

Members of all ages and entire families take part in the organization. While there are international CISV opportunities, our local chapter is the highlight of any CISV experience. Active local involvement also enables individuals to apply for a number of international opportunities each year. Active local involvement by youth and adults of any age enables CISV Victoria to thrive, and our volunteers are vital to our success!
