              What does AIESEC stand for?

               

              AIESEC (pronounced eye-sek) was originally an acronym for Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales. AIESEC is no longer used as an acronym but simply as the name of the organization.

              Members of AIESEC are known as “AIESECers.”

              We are a global network of young leaders under the age of 30 who strive to better themselves and the communities around them. We are passionate about world issues, leadership development, cultural understanding and experiential learning.

              The organization spans 126 countries and territories and every aspect of AIESEC’s operations are managed by students and recent graduates. We have operated in this way since our inception, making us uniquely “by students, for students”, for over 65 years. The global leadership teams are elected by the membership annually.

              How much does Global Volunteer cost?

              Our volunteers come with a modest administration fee that enables our national staff to help us facilitate the process of sending you abroad.

              Ching An Yang

              Beijing, China

              I went to Beijing, China for an environmental project as a Taiwanese American in the Summer of 2016. I was able to tour around the city, break the stereotypes, and bond with people with different cultures and religions, and ultimately widened my perspective of the world.

              Dave Tran

              Pordenone, Italy

              Last summer I had an opportunity to travel to Pordenone, Italy to provide sports opportunities and activities to young children at a summer camp. I have to say it was a life-changing trip and I had an unforgettable experience meeting people around the world.
