2018 Interchange: São Paulo, Brazil


Building intercultural competence

While based on the same educational principles as CISV’s camp-based programs, Interchange encourages a deeper encounter between two cultures by placing young people within families.  Group activities such as a mini-camp are vital in complementing the intense in-depth family experience.  Interchange takes place in two phases with one delegation visiting another country and then reciprocating by hosting the delegation from the country they visited.  Not only is this a profound intercultural experience for the youth participant, but it also engages the whole family, and potentially the community in which they live, in the CISV experience.

  • Ages: . 12 and 13
  • Delegation: Three girls, three boys, and a leader
  • Cost: $1750 + transportation fees
  • Tentative Dates:  June 30 to July 30, 2018
  • Contact: Manuela Tapadinhas
