Why should I vote for AIESEC?
AIESEC has been developing young leaders for more than 60 years now in more than 126 countries and territories. Through membership and global internship programs we have developed leaders we believe will help push the humanity forward; leaders who are are self-aware, world citizens, able to empower others and always strive to find solutions.
In the last five years, we mobilized more than 90 000 young people who went on volunteer internships abroad to undergo personal development journey by volunteering to tackle major global issues such as eradicating poverty, improving literacy, combating climate change, improving cultural understanding and many others.
In the past five years we also helped more than 23 000 young people find global professional paid internships in the companies of our partners. Global professional internships have not only contributed to young people developing personally and professionally, but have made then more employable and better prepared for the future.
Being the 10th Global Non-Profit Partner of Microsoft would help us scale our impact, help thousands of young people activate their leadership potential and bring us a step closer to our organization’s mission and vision – Peace and Fulfillment of Humankind’s Potential.
Thank you so much for choosing to vote for us!
