Volunteer for our 2019 Village
CISV DC is hosting a Village this summer. Village is a 28-day program for 11 year-olds. This CISV program focuses on peace education and building active global citizens. Hosting a successful CISV program is impossible without the help of our chapter and local community. Here are some ways the DC chapter can use your help. We thank you in advance for your continued support!
Host Families - We have two host family weekends and need families to host our amazing delegates from around the world.
Host Family Weekend #1 - June 28, 2019 - June 30, 2019
Host Family Weekend #2 - July 12, 2019 - July 14, 2019
Food Committee - CISV DC will self cater all breakfast, snacks and weekend meals. We need volunteers to donate breakfast and snack items and to sponsor weekend lunch and dinner meals.
Supplies - Donate Supplies for the village. A list will be provided.
Leader Welcome Party - June 29, 2019 - We are looking for someone or a few people to host a welcome party for our leaders who have traveled far and have quite a busy month of non-stop planning and fun ahead of them.
Leaders Weekend July 12-14, 2019 - Our leaders, staff and JCs work so hard and halfway through the camp we would like to treat them to a mini getaway while the delegates are with their host families. If you have a beach house, mountain house within 30mins to 3 hour drive away and would like to donate it us for the weekend that would be great.
Gift Card Donations - we can always use gift cards from the following locations to purchase items needed for our village: Walmart, Costco, Sams Club, BJs, Grocery Stores.
Monetary Donations - CISV is a 100% volunteer organization and it takes a village to host a village, we need your help to raise funds. We want to make sure that we are hosting an unfortgettable experience for our 11 year olds and their leaders.
Setup and Clean up - We will need help setting up the campsite with beds, blankets, organizing supplies, and rooms. And at the end of the camp we will need to clean up the campsite, pack up the beds, supplies and get everything to storage. JBers are encouraged to volunteer for service hours.
