What we’re all about
AIESEC is a global youth led organisation striving to achieve peace and fulfilment of humankind's potential by activating leadership qualities in youth through learning from practical experiences in challenging environments. Joining AIESEC give you access to a huge community of globally minded young leaders, who want to grow their own potential whilst contributing to something bigger than themselves.
We give you immediate responsibilities so you can learn by doing, step outside your comfort zone, and experience successes and failures in a supportive environment. If you're keen on activating your potential, and contributing to a mission that changes the world, then we want you. We can't promise you it'll be easy, but it will be worth it.
You will usually meet every week for functional team meetings where you will discuss strategies and projects with your team, and every two weeks for an LCM (local committee meeting) where everyone in AIESEC Leeds comes together to share ideas and gain valuable information.
We usually have socials after every Local Committee Meeting, and there are 3 national conferences a year, along with hundreds of international conferences around the AIESEC network for members of AIESEC (see Membership section).
