The annual AIESEC week was held on June 11-13, 2019 with the objective to enroll students for the global cross-cultural exchange program during Summer. This is an initiative that provides opportunities for students to meet, engage and interact with other global AISEC members through global volunteer, global talent and global entrepreneur.

The global volunteer is a cross-cultural experience for youth who want to gain personal development and leave an impact in the world. It brings together international youth from around the world to work on social impact projects that contribute toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The program works closely with local AIESEC members who assist in culturally inducting the volunteers as well as facilitating an enjoyable experience for them.

The global talent program allows students searching for the next opportunity and differentiate themselves through an international internship and gain professional experience. This allows organizations across the world to fulfill their human resources needs with skilled young talent, hire global interns and gain a competitive advantage over their business rivals.

The global entrepreneur program involves a dynamic, fast-paced work environment where budding entrepreneurs can begin their entrepreneurial journey with an internship at a startup. It connects startups with bright minds, ready to learn and contribute and infuse an international perspective and a fresh energy through hiring an international entrepreneur. Students who enroll for this program are empowered to experience a fulfilling environment to learn and contribute towards their entrepreneurial goals.

AISEC aims to develop youth leaders who have the ability to empower others by actively finding solutions to challenges. It is a global youth network impacting the world through leadership development experiences. AIESEC has been facilitating youth leadership activities, as well as international internships and volunteer experiences for over 66 years; developing a global learning environment across 126 countries and territories. AIESEC is a non-governmental not-for-profit organization in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), affiliated with the UN DPI, member of ICMYO, and is recognized by UNESCO.
