CISV was founded in the belief that peace is possible through building friendship and mutual understanding, starting with children.
We help our young participants develop to their full potential as future leaders and active citizens, to make a difference in their communities and the world. We also give them the opportunity to build global friendships and networks that will last them a lifetime.
CISV Detroit has been active since 1966. Serving the metro Detroit area, we proudly host participants from around the world every summer. Our board, currently led by President Sharon Hicks, is made up of former delegates, parents of delegates, former leaders and staff, and Junior Branch members.
