About CISV
Our Purpose


Childrens International Summer Villages (CISV) has a vision of a more just and peaceful world; we believe that we can all take responsibility for making this happen. This vision gives us a strong purpose, or mission, which is summed up clearly in our Statement of Purpose:

CISV educates and inspires action for a more just and peaceful world.

In order to accomplish our purpose, we hold certain values:
  • Friendship
  • Inclusiveness
  • Enthusiasm
  • Engagement
  • Cooperation

Our History: CISV International

CISV was conceived in the late 1940's by an American psychologist, Dr. Doris Allen.  Dr. Allen believed that by creating opportunities for children of different cultures to come together to learn and make friends, they would grow up to become ambassadors for a more just and peaceful world.
