The Interchange programme is a 2-way family exchange, providing an immersive and unique experience for youth aged 12-15.

Our cultures begin in our homes. This exchange programme for teens promotes aspects of peace education by placing participants with families from a CISV chapter in another country. The Interchange has two phases, one in each country, allowing each participant to be both a visitor and a host. This is not only a profound cultural experience for the young participants, but it also engages the whole family, and often the broader community, in the learning experience.
