“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.”
