“AIESEC is the largest student run organization in the world. We [AIESEC] have over 70,000 members worldwide with over 2,400 universities represented, and we have a presence of 126 countries and territories. So what do we do? We develop young individuals into global leaders by sending them abroad on volunteer and internship opportunities. How do we do this? We work with other AIESEC chapters across the world. AIESECers will go to the companies in their home countries and find opportunities for international student. Then, other AIESEC chapters have access to these opportunities, and match students from their school to them.”
