About Us


What is AIESEC?

We are a global youth-led organization, striving to achieve Peace & Fulfilment of Humankind’s Potential. We activate youth leadership by facilitating young people to learn through practical experiences in challenging environments.



AIESEC was founded after the Second World War by a group of young people in Europe. We believe that youth holds the key to unlock a better future, and so we activate youth leadership by facilitating young people to learn through practical experiences in challenging environments.
