Wait, there is more! CISV isn’t just about the travel program.
The Junior Branch is for all local CISVers between the ages of 11 – 18. It is an opportunity to develop intercultural and leadership skills through local educational and social activities. The Junior Branch is the very heart and soul of CISV, and members enjoy year-long activities that include monthly meetings, activities such as bowling and mini camps, and participating in events to support local charities. The JB is open to all local youth members. The JB has been a part of each local chapter around the world for the last 40 years. All JBs are part of A Global Movement who All JBs work towards the JB Goals. All JBs are constantly developing and are self-governing entities,
The JB Goals describe what JBers hope to achieve by taking part in Junior Branch. The JB Goals are:

JB advances leadership by taking charge of running their own activities. JB gives youth the chance to take action and plan their own events and activities, from arranging activities for youth from the entire chapter.
JB gathers several times throughout the year for fellowship and community service:
