Volunteer Abroad with AIESEC

Global Volunteer Logo - AIESEC in Sweden

Global Volunteer with AIESEC is a 6-8 week unpaid volunteering project where youth work for one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals in a community abroad. Our volunteers experience life in a different country, navigate the culture and develop their leadership skills. Since we started back in 1948, we have sent over 30,000 youth from Sweden abroad, you can read their stories here.
