Global Citizen AIESEC’s Global Citizen Program gives young people the opportunity to volunteer abroad and develop entrepreneurial and responsible leadership skills. About the Global Citizen
We believe the most powerful way to learn something is to experience it. Through a complete cultural immersion and a challenging new environment, young people have the chance to rediscover themselves, increase their level of self-awareness and undergo immense personal growth. At the same time, by volunteering to address global issues hands-on in local communities, young people acquire new soft skills, evolve professionally, develop a sense of world citizenship, desire to contribute and have positive impact on society. The purpose of Global Citizen Program and its indirect impact is to develop responsible young leaders who are self-aware, world citizens, able to empower others and always strive to find solutions. The value of the program can also seen in its direct impact over the years – contribution to addressing global issues such as providing education, improving literacy, eradicating poverty, sustainable living, delivering sanitation and human rights.
