Adult Leaders for all CISV programs are volunteers who are carefully selected and trained. The primary qualifications, in addition to being 21 years of age or older, are a love for working with children, a belief in the philosophy of CISV, some travel experience, and the flexibility and maturity necessary to lead a delegation of energetic young people.

Leaders meet frequently with their delegations to prepare them for the CISV program experience. The leader provides the catalyst that allows the delegation to bond as a cohesive group of friends with a common purpose. Preparing leaders through extensive local and National training is a strict CISV requirement. Volunteer leaders include teachers, parents, clergy, business professionals, graduate students, and others.
