Volunteering

Every year volunteers from across Victoria donate their time and creativity to run our CISV chapter and make our programmes possible. They all share a common goal of creating experiences where children, youth and adults learn to break stereotypes, make friends and develop skills to build bridges across cultures.

There are opportunities for volunteers of all ages.

If you are a post secondary student, volunteering with CISV will add a whole new dimension to your studies and expand your world view.

While you have a fun time volunteering with CISV, you will also be building on your own skills and competencies. Leaders are provided essential training and preparation for leading programmes and can gain many skills participating in CISV activities. Here’s a list of just a few:

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

Adult Volunteers are our biggest resource and the backbone of our local chapter. We are a family organization and expect everyone to become involved. In order to participate in international programmes, we must host programmes locally. We need everyone’s help to host quality local and international events. Families that join CISV Victoria are often surprised to find that the CISV experiences they intended to benefit their child have actually had a positive effect on their entire family. We need people to take on leadership roles, and we also need people to lend a helping hand in small ways. There is always a place for you to help!

Join our global community of volunteers and make a difference by contacting us at communications@CISVvictoria.ca.
