Description

AIESEC

AIESEC is the largest international youth-led organisation, present in 126 countries and with over 70,000 active members. AIESEC UK is a member committee of AIESEC International. This organisation serves as a platform for youths aged 16-25 to travel abroad for volunteering or entrepreneurial purposes to make the world a better place.

 

AIESEC operates as a social enterprise - a not-for-profit business that operates for a purpose. Each AIESEC team and member play a part in creating our youth leadership movement for the world.  

 

  1. AIESEC in Bristol

AIESEC in Bristol is one of the 15 local committees in the United Kingdom ran by students, for students in and around the Bristol area. Our local committee has 3 main operational functions – Outgoing Global Volunteer (OGV), Outgoing Global Talent (oGT) and Outgoing Global Euentrprenuer 

 

- Our Outgoing Global Volunteer team enables young people to go abroad for short-term volunteering projects aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

- Our Outgoing Global Talent team enables young people to take on a 3-18 month role in companies abroad.

- Our Outgoing Global Entrepreneur team enables young people to go abroad for short term internship experiences at a start-up company. 

 

In all teams, we aim to do this by

  • Holding marketing stalls and info sessions for all products

 

  • Attending career fairs to show Outgoing Global Talent and Entrepreneur
  • As well as holding events such as Global Village events along with other cultural societies to promote the countries which AIESEC UK are partnered with. 

 

In AIESEC in Bristol, our main goal is to drive cross-cultural exchanges, and through this, we see ourselves developing ourselves professionally and personally.   

 

  1. Touchpoints

Apart from operational touchpoints (as above), we have Local Committee Meetings every Tuesday from 6 pm-7 pm and Functional Meetings straight after from 7 pm-8 pm at the Hannah Moore Building at the Bristol SU. These are compulsory to ensure personal development and that everyone is up to date regarding functional details. 

 

  1. Valuable Skills
  • As we run akin to a business, you will be challenged to lead teams as soon as you begin, providing you with practical experiences that teach you how to empower others.
  • As a member, we'll give you projects and tasks that will require you to think outside the box, take risks, and ultimately be solution-oriented in the face of challenges.
  • You'll become a world citizen and join a community that takes responsibility for improving the world together.
  • Through the experiences you gain as a member, you'll become more self-aware about your passions, values and find yourself in the process.

 

 

Our intense, team-based experiences will provide you with personal and professional skills in an environment that empowers you to grow. By joining AIESEC, you become one of the 40,000+ members across the world. Connect with like-minded young people who are as passionate about global issues as you are. As an AIESEC member, your actions have a direct impact on the people around you. From impacting your teammates to driving change in your communities, the opportunities to shape the world are endless and entirely up to you.
