The CISV Experience:
- Check out these CISV Stories to get a glimpse of the impact CISV programs have on their participants
Training note: Anyone participating in a CISV program over the age of 16 (except for Youth Meeting or Fortnight delegates) must attend CISV National Leadership Training (NLT). The chapter covers the cost of the training and travel to the preferred training. Before applying for a position please familiarize yourself with the training dates and be sure you are available.
- Local Leader Training will be held in early April. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
- National Leader Training. Training will be conducted here in Cape Elizabeth, Maine on Saturday, May 13th. Contact email@example.com for up to date info.
If, last summer, you led a delegation to the same program you are attending this summer, then you do not need to attend National Leader Training again. National Leader Training certification is good for two years; however, Local Leader Training must be repeated every year.
If you can not attend the scheduled NLT, you may attend another training session. However, you may be responsible for part of the cost of travel above and beyond the cost of your scheduled training.
