Our vision: peace and the fulfilment of humankind's potential.
To achieve this we seek to engage and empower every young person.
AIESEC is a global platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. We are a non-political, independent, not-for-profit organisation run by students and recent graduates of institutions of higher education. Our members are interested in world issues, leadership and management. AIESEC does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national/social origin.
Since we were founded, we have engaged and developed over 1,000,000 young people who have been through an AIESEC experience. The impact of our organisation can be seen through our alumni who represent business, NGO and world leaders, including one Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Martti Atisaari of Finland.
Why we do it
The world is full of complex challenges that need better leadership to address them. Our belief is that responsible and entrepreneurial leadership can help us solve many of today's challenges. Leaders who not only have the capabilities to create impact, but also the values that will guide their ethics and decision-making. From our early roots at the end of WWII our vision begins with changing the world not only from the outside, but from the inside out through the leaders we develop.
How we do it
Every year, we facilitate tens of thousands of life-changing experiences for students and recent graduates. Ranging from professional internships, volunteering experiences, or being a member of AIESEC on campus, we offer young people a chance to discover their leadership potential. Through our extensive partnerships ranging from multinationals to social enterprises, we offer young people the gain valuable skills, networks and competencies for future success.
