Xander Magevney is participating in promoting peace education and cross-cultural friendship.
Rising sixth grade student, Xander Magevney, has been selected to represent the United States at a CISV Village held in Norway this summer. His US delegation (2 girls and 2 boys and an adult leader from Jacksonville) will attend the Village along with delegations from 11 other countries.
At this 4-week long multi-cultural camp, he will participate in a mix of educational, cultural and sport activities designed to stimulate interest and learning about other cultures and create lasting bonds of friendship among delegates of different countries.
CISV, founded after World War II, is an independent, non-political, worldwide volunteer organization promoting peace education and cross-cultural friendship through youth programs. The Jacksonville Chapter of CISV (www.jax.cisvusa.org) has offered international and local programs for Jacksonville youth ages 11 to 18 since 1976.
