Welcome….. Our Vision: raising our standards for sustainable growth means that in every operation we run for the year must be aimed towards the sustainable growth of the local committee. This involves coming up with new policies, creating new partnerships, re-affirming past relationships with our alumni, partners and customers. In the year 2013-2014, we want to see an AIESEC IFE that creates more standards. Our Vision statements for the year are:  

Reviving the AIESEC Ife brand through synergy of every functional area; Build quality members who have imbibed the AIESEC culture and are constantly improving our relevance in our environment. These statements for us means that we have to make the AIESEC values part of our lives, always work together as a team to achieve more and we have to be dynamic and innovative it terms of our personal and professional lives and our operations. Although growth in every functional area might not be the same, but action steps are being taken is make operations run. A quote say “A goal is like a staircase, you don’t look at the staircase, just take a STEP with the end always in mind” Please stay tuned as we go through reports from the various functional areas of the Local Committee.

It is in line with the Active Contribution Program (ACP), centres on Youth leadership and career development and replaces Project YES. Also, a Program will be run tagged Project VOYAGE which is a concert that centres on “Raising the Voice of the Youth across all ages of the society”. It is an initiative that is in line with the AIESEC 2015 vision statement of “raising a global Youth Voice”.
