Our Global Citizen (Volunteer Abroad) program is a practical overseas experience for youth that develops leadership abilities by volunteering in an overseas community development project. The projects typically involve creating and facilitating activities for young people on issues like cultural education, health awareness and environmental sustainability, which allow you to have a direct positive impact on communities while gaining an intense cultural experience.
Participants venture to a foreign country in one of AIESEC’s 124 locations globally to participate in projects created or co-created by AIESEC. Top countries include China, Poland, Brazil, Cambodia and Hungary. What makes our program unique is that at its core, we are focused on developing leadership and enhancing cross-cultural understanding. Volunteers take home the skills, cultural understanding and sense of global citizenship they learn overseas, so they can further touch those in their own community.
