AIESEC is the world’s largest youth organisation, spread over more than 100 countries. Founded by a group of young people in 1948, after World War II, it aims to achieve peace and the development of human potential.
AIESEC has always believed in the possibility of achieving this goal through the development of leadership skills in young people, by placing them in multicultural and challenging environments.
In this context, AIESEC has three programs that allow young people to conduct international experiences of different natures: Global Volunteer, Global Talent and Global Teacher. The three programs have very specific characteristics!
AIESEC International Programs
Global Volunteer has a volunteer component, while the other two programmes are related with professional internships. Throughout the process of selection and completion of the experience, you will always be accompanied by an AIESEC member.
The Global Volunteer program is characterised by being aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
In addition, this program has a duration of 6 to 8 weeks. This allows you to stay with a local family and benefit from a multicultural experience, while impacting others and developing yourself.
Can you imagine living your daily life in a completely different culture, while working on a project to build a better developed and more sustainable community?
The Global Talent program has a duration of 6 to 8 weeks or 9 weeks to 1 year. During this time, you can develop yourself, boost your career and be in an environment within your field of studies. You can also benefit from accommodation or a salary.
You can embark on this adventure right after the end of your degree, or even during it, if you decide for a shorter program!
Have you ever imagined how important it would be, for your first experience on the job market, to be in an international context?
You could belong to a multinational company or to a startup. At the end of your experience, you can even become part of the permanent workers of the company! But you will only know, if you try…
Finally, the Global Teacher program. It has a focus on the area of education, lasting from 9 weeks to 1 year.
During the course of this program, you will have the global opportunity to develop yourself, while boosting your career. Here you will be in a practical environment, being able to finally put all your academic learning into practice.
As a Global Teacher, you can have your first experience as a teacher of young people, from totally different realities!
Can you imagine what it would be like to be teaching children, impacting their lives and becoming a better professional?
How can I apply?
Any of these programs will put you in challenging environments and you can apply for them through AIESEC website.
After you apply, you will be allocated to one of the nine AIESEC in Portugal offices. You will be quickly contacted by one of its members, to schedule an information session and start the process.
On the other hand, if you want to develop leadership skills, without the international experience, you can become an AIESEC member.
As a member, you have a wide range of departments where you can learn and grow. At AIESEC you can reach higher positions, nationally or internationally, in the long term.
To become a member, pay attention to AIESEC’s social networks, to find out when recruitment is open. Right now, recruitment is running until August 23, so if you want to develop the leader in you, join AIESEC here.
