Junior Branch

Youth building social capital

The very heart and soul of CISV, Junior Branch comprises young local CISVers between the ages of 11 - 25, who develop intercultural and leadership skills through educational and social activities. Juniors manage their own activities and take an active role in the administrative responsibilities of their chapters. Operating through a network at the national and international level, Juniors organize their own programs on a wide variety of themes, such as social justice and the environment. Junior Branch activities are aimed at building community, developing skills and promoting peace through education.

Age 11 - 25

Junior Branch Events

We are having a scavenger hunt in the Westfield Mall in San Francisco! We will be divided into groups, have to analyze clues to complete tasks around the mall in order to win! We will have an older JB member with every group, and will have adults around the mall to assist.
Our first event will fall on the anniversary of Doris Allen's birthday, and in celebration, we are asking every one to wear CISV t-shirts if you have them!

Ever wondered what CISV was all about? Why its volunteers are always so enthusiastic? Why all they apparently wear are CISV shirts and sweaters? If so, the CISV National Night is the event for you!
