Our Junior Counsellors (JCs) lead our younger participants in their daily adventures at our residential camps. They play an important role in helping their group of participants become a team and make sure that each day is exciting, educational and safe. JCs get valuable training before the camp and ongoing support and training throughout the camp from the Programme Directors and their staff.
Being a JC is a great first time ’employment’ opportunity, where you get to take responsibility and develop your leadership, teamworking, and other personal skills.
As a CISV JC, you will interact with children and young teens, help with activities and serve as leaders in maintaining the CISV camp spirit and motivation. As the right-hand-person of an adult staff, you will often assist them in running activities, lead kitchen duties, and take part in daily flag ceremonies and other routines. Most importantly, you will serve as a role model for our young participants.
Lead a delegation or staff a camp
Take a delegation of children to a camp somewhere in the world or help staff a camp, and you’ll not only help enrich their lives, but your own as well! By the end of the camp you will have met many exciting CISV volunteers and children from around the world, and made friendships for life.
You will be part of a team of committed, like-minded volunteers working to create an unforgettable experience for the children or young people in your care. You will have the support and leadership of our highly experienced staff. You will help children and young people develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes they need to take a positive, active role in their local and global community. You will guide them as they build friendships, have fun, and learn from you and each other.
