INTRODUCTION Dear friends,

Every year, AIESEC offers Internship Program for young people to be provided with powerful learning experiences. Working abroad through our program, you will have chances to challenge your worldview. It is not just the absence of the natural bonds with home (family, friends, culture, etc.) but also the opportunity to stand by oneself, to face the day to day challenges outside of the “comfort zone�, to question your own thinking, the way things are or the way things work, both at personal and

professional level.

This booklet will explain clearly about this program as well as the process for you to become our Exchange Participant. Hope you enjoy it.
