Mission
Children's International Summer Villages (CISV) Calgary empowers youth to embrace their global community; in Calgary and around the world.
Our experiential education programs develop:

  •   Friendships
  •   Inclusiveness
  •   Cooperation   
  •   Leadership

Vision
"Calgary is a peaceful community inspired by youth leadership."
CISV evolved from a firm conviction that lasting peace is possible if individuals and groups can learn to live together as friends. For CISV, the key to making this vision a reality, was to start working with children and youth. Programs were developed which offered young people opportunities to meet their peers from other countries and to form intercultural friendships.
