Youth Counselors for Village programs

At 16 or 17 years of age, Junior Counselors are able to relate to both children and the adults and to act as a link between them during a CISV Village. JCs participate in leaders’ meetings and lead activities, just like any delegation leader would participate.

The JCs also have the ability to serve as the bridge between the delegates and the adults. All the children need to feel liked and loved by the JCs, who appear like older sisters and brothers.

Many CISV leadership positions are gender specific because CISV aims to keep a balance of genders in each program. When chapters receive invitations to various programs, the gender of the leadership position is predetermined.

Being a Junior Counselor is a position of responsibility

A Junior Counselor goes through the same National Leader Training as all adult program leaders and staff do.  The JC position requires maturity, responsibility, commitment and hard work.  It may also be one of the most meaning experiences of your life.  To learn more about what being a JC, read about What to expect as a Junior Counselor.
