AIESEC is the world’s largest youth-led organisation, a global network of over 70,000 active members from 2,400 universities in 126 countries worldwide.
AIESEC Sheffield is a fairly new local committee when compared to the other local committees. It started off as a small committee and grew as years passed. We’ve produced successful entrepreneurs and are currently producing more.
True leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders!
AIESEC shapes the behaviour and attitude of young people, leaning them towards the direction of becoming a leader. We offer relevant and engaging opportunities that allow the youth of today to explore and develop their leadership capabilities.
AIESEC was officially founded in 1948. AIESEC when translated from French stood for International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences. But today, due to the major expansion, we’re known just as AIESEC as we’ve got students from all types of courses joining us. And, we don’t intend on stopping them from being a part of us.
“We cannot build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
The world needs more valuable and capable leaders to address issues that are concerning and direct us, as a community towards the right track.
Help us create a better place for ourselves and the rest of the world. In order to change the world, we need to start with ourselves.
Be a leader, empower, aspire, persevere and travel the world through AIESEC Global Programmes. Begin your journey here

Change lives, empower and at the same time, head out on an adventure through an AIESEC Global Volunteer Program.
Our aim is to address the worlds biggest issues such as Cultural Understanding, Education, Environment, Health & Social Entrepreneurship.
With our Global Volunteer programme you have the opportunity to spend six to eight weeks volunteering in one of our 15 partner countries.
AIESEC believes that changes comes from within. And if you think this is a big step for you, don’t worry because this is one of the reasons why we’re here for. We’ll guide you through the initial stages and slowly, without even realising it, you’re someone else’s idol and mentor.
Our Global Volunteer program gives you an opportunity to become a great leader and an amazing individual. Give it a try. If you don’t try, you’ll never know. And trust us when we say, this is a lifetime opportunity you’ll never regret! Get started
AIESEC’s Global Talent program connects students and recent graduates to paid international Internships experiences across the world. This process is entirely student-operated with AIESEC members working to produce the best quality exchanges possible. Our goal is to send 1000 more young people in the United Kingdom on programs that will develop professional skills and a global mindset by the end of 2015. Each internship lasts between 3 and 18 months and are exclusively available for those that utilise AIESEC’s services.
TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR STUDENTS
“I was on exchange in Mauritius in summer 2015 for 6 weeks and I had two projects, one in education and the other cultural awareness. In the education project, I worked in a team of 6 or so people to help understand the Mauritian education system, particularly when transiting to university. The cultural awareness one involved meeting people from different countries and working together to achieve something as a team. Exchange is not only about volunteering and helping in the community but its also about in-reach and expanding your global network. My experience taught me that it is important to go out there, make a difference, even if it ain’t much, meet new people and have fun!!
