Become a SCItizen and support the peace work of SCILet’s unite and let our voice be heard Become a SCItizen!FAQs about SCItizens
Why become a SCItizen?
With many of us living outside our own countries or having little contact with our local branch, SCItizens gives you the opportunity to be a global SCI citizen, to support SCI even if you can’t actively take part.
Being a global SCItizen will help to support the SCI movement in the same ways that other NGOs build a global following. It will connect the SCI family past, present and future to give us a stronger voice and to encourage global solidarity for peace within ourselves, peace in our communities and peace with the natural environment.
Subscriptions will help to support our international work. And 20% will be allocated to support branches in need, to keep the movement strong and represented around the world.
You are also encouraged to join your local branch too and become active. For ways to be actively involved, explore our website under “get involved”.

What does it mean to be a SCItizen?
Being a SCItizen means being part of a community of SCI supporters united by their belief in the values and ethos of SCI.
By joining, you contribute to the promotion of peace by supporting our work, including international workcamps, projects, training courses, network capacity building, knowledge sharing and so much more.
As a SCItizen, we will keep you informed of what is happening in SCI and give you interesting behind-the-scenes content.
Do I have to pay the set amount?
We understand that people are at different stages of life, in different economic cultures and so subscriptions are based on what you feel you can afford. You can choose you custom amount as well as choose monthly or yearly.
If you are not ready to set up a regular subscription explore our website for other ways to be active in promoting peace.
What is the difference between the SCItizenship subscription and the membership of a local SCI branch?
Subscriptions to SCItizens will go towards international solidarity and coordination, giving SCI and international voluntary service a bigger voice in this troubled world. Part of the income will also go towards branches in need.
By becoming a SCItizen, you will support SCI at the international level, uniting and coordinating the work of the branches to create a bigger impact.
We also encourage you to be members of your local branch and support the local SCI work. Membership to a local branch allows you to support local actions and have a say in how your local group is run.
How will you use the subscriptions?
Subscriptions will be mainly used to finance the work of the international level. This includes international promotion, joint projects with branches, connecting the movement through international meetings and online calls, and supporting working groups and international teams to make our work bigger, better and stronger.
However, you should know that 20% of the donations received from SCItizens will be distributed to SCI branches in need of financial support, helping to support a stronger global community and have SCI represented in more and more places.
I want to change the amount of my subscription or the frequency, how can I do that?
