I will definitely recommend AIESEC to every youngster out there so they can meet smart & sharp people who really want to make a difference.
If you have a knack for traveling and creating an impact in the world, then exchange option is the perfect opportunity for you to explore beyond your horizon. Exchange is the core product of AIESEC. It offers Volunteering, Internship & Entrepreneur opportunities to the youth.

You get to experience the different culture, traditions, and perspective of the AIESECers, whether they are in your local committee, or by an international committee. Breaking stereotypes is what makes you unconventional.
4. STYLE AND SUBSTANCE
Geeks, nerds, creative maestros, scientists, artists are all working under the one roof that is AIESEC.
AIESEC is a capacious global non-profitable youth organization, and one of the main targets is inculcating leadership skills. From a very young age, you experience a fast paced environment, which focuses on teamwork, independence, flexibility and corporate skills.

AIESEC currently is linked with the United Nations in promoting and aligning its activities in the lines of the Sustainable Development Goals. AIESECers are the epitome of social empowerment.
Most of the successful alumni of AIESEC are working for leading multi national companies and entrepreneurship ventures. Your network is likely to provide you with an outlet for discovery that you might be interested in.
