AIESEC AIESEC is a global youth-led organization striving to achieve peace and fulfillment of humankind’s potential by activating leadership qualities in youth through learning from practical experiences in challenging environments. Together with partner organizations, AIESEC facilitates a network of cross-cultural exchanges in the form of volunteering experiences and professional internships.

Our Differentiator What makes us unique is Activating leadership through exchange.

Additionally to that we have other characteristics which differentiate us: collaborative network, international environment, democracy, turnover, ethical leadership, dynamic spirit, youth-driven, experiential and practical learning.

We are a youth leadership movement In sum, AIESEC is a global network of people that simply believe that youth leadership is not an option, but our responsibility. Now the question is:

Will you join the movement?


SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed on 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.


GLOBAL VOLUNTEER If we don’t change the world, then who will? Global Volunteer is a cross-cultural volunteer experience for young people who seek to develop themselves and the world. Our Exchange Participants work with NGOs on projects directly contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals.


Cross-Cultural Environment Be a local in an unknown environment and experience new cultures by working in a diverse and cross-cultural team. Step out of your box and broaden your horizon, becoming a citizen of the World!

Volunteer Experience Volunteer abroad in NGOs or on projects that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. Tackle pressing global issues to create positive impact in local societies. Don’t just travel. Develop the world.

Develop Yourself Grow and develop by going through practical experiences and learning-by-doing. An intense crosscultural environment allows you to increase your self-awareness and solution orientation, improve communication skills and develop a global mindset. Become the best version of yourself!


RECI

Why Recife?

Recife is the capita Brazilian state of Per is home to over 4 mi is a vibrating city w parties, besides bei gastronomic and center with beautifu cal architecture. Th known as the “Braz because of the many islands and over 50 here.


IFE

?

al city of the rnambuco and illion people.It with music and ing a cultural, a business ul and historihe city is also zilian Venice�, y rivers, small bridges found

Also, Recife has beautiful beaches, like Porto de Galinhas, considered the most beautiful beach on the entire country. Recife stands out as a major tourist attraction of the Northeast, both for its beaches and for its historic sites, dating back to both the Portuguese and the Dutch colonization of the region. Despite that, Recife still has one of the worse social rates of the entire country, being home of people that doesn't have access to education, water and sometimes food. Inequality is the main word on the Capital, with elegant skyscrapers sharing the same neighbourhood with poor houses, and even people with no place to live.

So, the Global Volunteer program has a clear goal: It helps to bring positive impact to our city, bringing volunteers all over the world to help people on social vulnerability and create a multicultural and educational environment, improving the future of those children and the city.

AIESEC in Recife is waiting for you! We are looking foward to see you here developing yourself along with other trainees in our NGOs.

ACCOMMODATION Terms and Conditions AIESEC Recife provides free accommodation for all EPs for the duration of the projects. You might stay in a host family, a hostel, or in the NGO, if they have guest rooms. If you arrive before the start date and/or leave after the end of your project, you will be responsible for paying your accommodation. Usually, though, host families agree to host the EPs for a little longer (both before and after the project), but we can’t guarantee that. If needed, you may turn to cheap or even free options, such as hostels or Couchsurfing. AIESEC is not responsible for money or personal objects of the exchange student. It is the exchange student responsibility to keep and care of their own belongings.


Everything you need to know about your future host 1. They are not being paid to host you. They are volunteer as you. What they want in the experience is to practice the language and have a cultural exchange in theirs homes. 2. Most families own a car, but not all lend or leave available for exchange student use. So ask us about public transportation, anytime you need. 3. Hosts are not Responsible for your feeding. The two of you may come to terms about cooking and sharing spending on food.


4. AIESEC Recife cannot ensure that you will have benefits such as a private room, Wi-Fi, air conditioning or any other fancy treat in your host. Related to web connection, our office has internet site and you are welcome to use it if you need. 5. The Exchange Participants must follow the rules of their host place, such as maintaining the order, asking permission before bringing someone in, participating in household chores with others living with you, using suitable garment at home, respecting the manners of acting and speaking, and any other explicit host rules. 6. AIESEC Recife will have the obligation of providing another host or

accommodation, if the Exchange Participants are exposed to any kind of discrimination. However the EPs may lose their right for accommodation if they violate any policies stated by the host, such as breaking internal code of conduct or any other ethical, religious or cultural norm.

7. Living in a Host is part of your experience and, therefore, you are responsible for making the best out of it. If you are in the host family, we recommend that you spend some time and engage with them to their daily lives. Give yourself the chance to get to know them and you might get yourself a loving and welcoming family far from home.


WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU 1. Be open to share your culture; 2. Be open-minded with the cultural exchange; 3. To act with commitment, ethical and pro-activity in all performed actions; 4. Be patient, positive and resilient; 5. Answer our emails, so we can have a good communication; 6. Send us the documentation until 15 days before arrival
