CCIVS is predominantly occupied with International Voluntary Service, and the status of full member therefore requires a proof of the involvement of your organisation in sending and/or hosting international volunteers, ideally for either short-term (workcamps) or medium and long term (MLTV) programmes (Cf. Art 5.a of CCIVS constitution).

Please note that all the documents must be in English. Applications are considered by the CCIVS' Executive Committee (EC). The acceptance by the EC is subject to ratification by the General Assembly of CCIVS, currently taking place once every two years. The Secretariat circulates the complete application among the EC members, which takes a final decision by its next physical meeting at the latest. In case your application cannot be considered favourably, the inscription fee paid by you in advance shall be reimbursed. The administration fee is not refundable.
