As the world's largest student organization, AIESEC is the international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential to have a positive impact in society.
AIESEC Calgary belongs to a network of AIESEC chapters in 29 universities across Canada and 2400 universities globally all with a common goal of developing leadership through exchange. AIESEC's dedication to teamwork, innovation, and youth empowerment is what propels us toward our goal of facilitating as many cross-cultural exchanges as possible.
What's a current world issue you're passionate about? What's the cause of the issue? How can it be solved?
AIESEC believes that through cross-cultural experiences, youth develop increased self-awareness and a global mindset. Each member makes an impact globally by enabling Canadians to grow through cross-cultural exchanges or expand the horizons of Canadian businesses by bringing interns from around the world to work in Canada. In turn, youth develop a more open-minded mindset alleviating the misunderstandings between different cultures, perspectives, and opinions. With a global mindset, youth begin to understand their role in solving global issues and this makes an incredible difference in giving youth a voice and preparing them to be change makers in their careers.
Now you know what we strive for. Come strive with us. Join AIESEC!
