The World in 2013 Documenting another year in Junior Branch World

Welcome! !

Keeping the tradition alive, and because not all reports have to be about events happening in the international sphere of Junior Branch, we bring to you today The World in 2013. The purpose of this lovely document is to inform all of CISV – all 212 local Chapters and Junior Branches, all 70 countries – of what and how Junior Branch has developed in the past year. Moreover, it shows a quick overview of what the IJB Team is currently cooking up in order to help you contribute to Junior Branch in 2014 and beyond.


We are all part of the Global Movement of CISV and these pages intend to walk you through some of the achievements we have had as such. Read through this brief report to find out more on initiatives and projects.


How this document is structured. It is brought to you by the three people who were CISV’s International Junior Representatives in 2013. In an attempt to innovate and move away from text, we made a brief leaflet, hopefully it will provide enough information to show the impact of Junior Branch in 2013. While this timeline does not come close to covering the activities of IJB in 2013, he hope it provides some insight. You can browse the JB Library for more in-depth documentation ( | username: ijb.guest | password: cisv4all). The moving forward section is specifically dedicated to all members of other CISV International Committees to see ways in which we can collaborate within our organisation.


These our are ideas on how IJB developed throughout the year. If you have more, you know where to find us.

Projects & Tools

moving forward | projects & tools Global Training Strategy 2014. In order to re-launch a training strategy and annual training focuses we worked on implementing it at the regional level in 2013. We made sure it was used to plan all three Regional Meetings and with the feedback we will improve the tool and take it to the National and Local level in 2015.


JB Self-Evaluation Tool. We are looking for different ways to use the data provided in the improved evaluation tool. Do you have any ideas? Have you used the data already? When was the last time your Junior Branch self-evaluated?


IJB Events.

In order to better introduce risk management in all our international trainings, we’re developing different strategies to keep everything regulated and well planed. You will hear about the IJB-Legal Information Form soon!

moving forward | IJB Events International Junior Branch Conference 2014 With the end of CISV’s Annual International Meeting (AIM), for the first time in many years IJBC will be hosted as a single event in August.

Americas’ Junior Branch Meeting and Americas Regional Conference 2014


The JBers from the Americas have decided to host their annual regional meeting together with the regional meeting of the NAs/PAs. We hope this will foster further collaboration and integration.

New events at the regional level More and more diverse workshops and trainings are being


planned by JB neighborhoods. We are excited to support these initiatives at which JBers can come together and explore different themes and training elements.

moving forward | International Junior Branch JB Review

A mixed group of eight CISVers are working to lead a thorough review of Junior Branch’s culture, structure and meetings. As approved at AIM 2013, this team will present their findings and recommendations at the first Global Conference in 2015. Hopefully Junior Branch and CISV will keep improving thanks to this evaluation.


IJB Team structure

We are currently working based on the new structure proposed by the CISV Transition Team and approved by the CISV Int. Board at AIM 2013. It has proven to give good results specially as we are more connected with the rest of the international structure, projects and initiatives.

What are you doing that can contribute to these?
