IJB Team History

The restructuring process started in 2011, but before IJBC 2011, we used to work in three sections called quality lab, connect and growth and development.

In 2011 the IJB Team entered a process of restructuring. At the IJB Team meeting before IJBC 2011 the team present defined the goals of the team, and came up with a temporary structure to work. However, there was an intensive evaluation of the structure, and by IJBC 2012 we were able to choose to adopt a new one based on our evaluation and work during the year. To find out more about the re-structuring process, visit IJB Team Restructure 2011.

In 2013, the structure of the IJB Team had to change in order to adapt to the new structural changes taken in CISV International. The new structure is the results of that integration, which you can read more at www.cisv.org
