What we do Leadership Program: A program aimed at establishing the basic concepts of leadership development in the youth. In this phase you will be introduced to a pracEcal team experience, gain access to a global network and engage in pracEcal hard skills development. Global Volunteer Program: This program seeks to create cross-‐ cultural posiEve impact through sending youths on social and community development projects which lead to self development and skills-‐enhancement. The program allows Jordanian youths to volunteer abroad as well as bring in interna2onal students to engage with the local communi2es in Jordan. Global Internship Program: This program aims to match the needs of the market through sourcing global talent possessing speciﬁc skills and global mindsets which are less easily accessible in the domes2c market. This beneﬁts local companies in terms of providing interna2onal perspecEves and diversity while the interns (students and recent graduates) develop themselves both personally and professionally.

120 Jordanian youths to go for Global Volunteering
30 Jordanian youths to go for Global Internship

40 foreign students to come for Global Internship

We believe that our exchange program will develop our par2cipants’ leadership experience, eventually leading us to peace and fulﬁllment of Jordan’s youth poten2al.
8 Our AcEviEes
NaEonal Project – iLeap
Why iLeap? Our youth has the most poten2al as a resource that Jordan has as a country. To ensure the crea2on of the best future genera2on, we need to develop our youths since early age. To answer this need, our project will aim to enhance the quality of the Jordanian human resource at a young age through character building and skills development. When? This project will be held between March 2014 and April 2014 What? School Road Show Our targeted audience is students who are in 9th and 10th grade. This will be executed in Amman and Irbid. There will be 60 interna2onal students volunteering on the project. We also aim to work with local organisa2ons which deal with educa2on during the delivery of the project. Global Village As the closing of the project, we will hold a na2onal event where all our stakeholders will gather and get connected to the AIESEC network. In this event, we want to showcase the impact that the project had on the society. We will also have cultural performances from our interna2onal volunteers and Jordanian tradi2onal performances. Therefore, this event is also an ini2a2ve to raise the value of living diversity as a global ci2zen and to promote Jordan as a country at the same 2me.

Jordan Youth to Business
Why Jordan Youth to Business? The number of young people is increasing rapidly. Countries are struggling to adapt their workforce due to the growing gap between the skills of unemployed workers and the skills needed to perform the jobs of today and tomorrow. Young people are currently facing inequality in access to the corporate sector. Besides, as the dynamics of the corporate industry has increased over the years, fresh ideas from young people are needed to maintain industry movement. We believe that the youth aspira2on will be a big contribu2on to the corporate sector. The mutual rela2onship between widespread unemployment and the youth aspira2on led to the idea of organizing a Jordan Youth to Business forum that aims to facilitate communica2on between Jordanian youth and the corporate sector. Youth to Business has been organized in several countries in the MENA region such as Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Lebanon. Youth to Business is a global brand which is trusted by top interna2onal corpora2ons such as Microsom which par2cipated in Egypt and Aramex which par2cipated in Bahrain. Therefore, we believe that this year is the 2me for is to bring Youth to Business to Jordan. When? February 2013 What? Youth to Business is a pla]orm of special dialogue between representa2ves of the youth and the business world on speciﬁc issues in Jordan and their corresponding solu2ons. Youth to Business is a one day event where a space is created for all delegates and guests to connect and discuss a speciﬁc ques2on and other related topics. This event is an evolu2on of our annual event, the Youth Leadership Forum which has been held in previous years.

Raisa Jorge – Intern from Brazil “Organizing the summer camp with AIESEC Amman was an enriching experience! Working with people from Jordan made me experience the Arab culture at its best.

Hanne Van ‘t klooster – Intern from the Netherlands “I spent 3 months in Nairobi, Kenya working for an NGO in the ﬁeld of environmental sustainability.
