The Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS)

CCIVS is an International Non Governmental Organisation (INGO) engaged in the field of International Voluntary Service (IVS). CCIVS' main focus is the quest to achieve 'change in the minds of men' by bringing together people of different backgrounds. It supports and develops projects based on the idea that working together on a concrete task is the most effective way of creating international friendship and understanding. The projects serve as a catalyst for dialogue as they provide an opportunity to work together according to each person's ability and to practice living together. In such situations national and international volunteers experience a new reality which can challenge their habits and convictions as well as those of the local community. CCIVS is inter-disciplinary: its members are self-regulating and involved in a wide variety of types of activity. 

With its Secretariat based at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, CCIVS has always worked closely with the UN organisation and complements UNESCO intellectual activity and goals in the fields of Education, Culture, Sciences and Communication through a hands-on, non-formal education approach transforming societies at the grassroots level.
