Introduction to AIESEC
AIESEC What are we? AIESEC is the world’s largest leadership development organization run completely by and for students. We strive to give students practical development experiences through our international exchange program as well as the member program of running a non-profit organization. As AIESECers, we firmly believe that by giving today’s youth a platform to explore and develop their leadership skills, they will become the type of leaders that the world will need tomorrow to solve our major issues. Our vision: Peace, and the fulfillment of humankind’s potential. By promoting cultural understanding through our exchange program and giving students the opportunity to create these exchange experiences, we believe that we are doing our part to contribute to a better tomorrow.
What to Expect as an AIESECer There are two main things that you can do in and with AIESEC. 1. Join AIESEC.

You could become either a Global Citizen through our volunteer programs, or a Global Talent through our paid internships. Global Citizen experiences are volunteer abroad programs that are generally unpaid and last about 6-8 weeks, however many of your living expenses are covered such as housing and some food. Global Talent internships are generally more long term internships, ranging from 3 months to a year and a half. These are generally paid internships in the fields of teaching, business or technology.
