The Leadership Qualities We Develop

We place our confidence in youth because they have the passion, dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit that are needed to shape the future. They have the responsibility to improve tomorrow by choosing who they will be today.

AIESEC provides an opportunity for young people to work or volunteer abroad in non-familiar environments. This allows them to step outside their comfort zone and expand their worldviews, while contributing to the community in which they are working. Living such experiences enables people to build a better understanding of how to communicate and capitalise on diversity in our increasingly connected world.

AIESEC’S leadership development model seeks to prepare youth to take a stand on what they care about and become capable to make a difference through their everyday actions. That is why our answer is to develop the characteristics according to the world’s biggest trends.
