Essence of Reintegration Reintegration – the key to X+L

For your EP?

 Reintegration completes a guided learning experience Reintegration is the last logical step in the way we understand exchange in terms of a guided learning experience within AIESEC. This is what makes the exchange with AIESEC special and distinguishes it from other possibilities. The Returnee reflects his learning experience in a supported way to set up goals for the future.

 Reintegration supports Reallocation A proper Reintegration ensures that the Returnee is able to continue his AIESEC Experience within the LC after his return.

For your LC?  Reintegration increases the opportunity for L after X

Reintegration brings experienced, professional and culturally sensitive people to your LC

Members with exchange experience in leadership positions are a great enrichment and live more high-quality experiences. As Reintegration enables the Returnee to continue his AIESEC Experience this is a very good chance for your LC to increase the L after X rate.

 Reintegration ensures evaluation of your exchange process Reintegration gives you a platform to evaluate your OGX processes. It helps you to figure out which aspects you run well and where you have to improve something.

 Reintegration enables you to learn from your Returnees Through Reintegration the whole LC benefits from the experience of the Returnee. This can happen in different ways e.g. country presentations, information evenings or through experienced Returnees as EP-Buddies. Your LC gets the chance to see how life changing the experience of exchange really is from someone who lived it.

Why we fail in reintegration?  EPs have a lack of understanding The exchange experience within AIESEC is a guided one. Unfortunately our EPs often have a lack of understanding concerning that learning experience. Reintegration is seen as not important or even not necessary and not as the last step of a learning experience. Often this follows from a communication of exchange and an expectation setting that is not conclusive enough.

 No interconnection between TM and OGX In terms of Reintegration it is necessary that TM and OGX work together intensively.

Why do we need Reintegration Program?

EPs are your pipeline for X+L! EPs will create a culture of exchange in your LC

EPs will have a leadership pipeline for EB/MC which will have exchange experience

EPs will have members/leaders that have experienced our EPs product and are motivation is passionate about it high after their exchange

EPs are a powerful tool of promotion
