The impact you’ll make

Let’s be honest. You are not going to change the world by a six-week volunteering project. We focus on leadership development, so with impact, we mostly mean the impact you can make on yourself. By learning from another culture and gaining experience in a new setting, we aim to develop the mindset & skills of a future leader. And if you are fully committed to your project, who knows what you can mean for other people too.

How it works

In the Netherlands, we will personally guide you to find a project you like and that fits your personal needs and we will help you prepare for your time abroad. Abroad, another AIESEC office will be your support system during your experience.

Experience Stories

Global Volunteer, Brechje, in Colombia

Maria Masseurs - Sri Lanka

The students really showed me they were excited to have me there and to learn about me and my culture and for them to share their knowledge about their culture with me.

The most memorable moment was celebrating the Sri Lankan New Year with the students during a festival organized by the school and the students.

Jochem Claes - Indonesia


The main goal of my project was to help a local village near Bandung, Indonesia with the growth of their local business.

My main impact was to partner up with the largest engineering university in Bandung such that they can sell on a more frequent basis. All in all an amazing experience in which I learned a lot!

Nadine Klibingat - Indonesia


The Mahidana 5.0 project is an environmental project that focuses on SDG 15, life on land. With the help of different actions and activities, we tried to help solve one of Asia’s biggest environmental problems, waste and plastic management.

Being a group of volunteers from all over the world we used our knowledge and experiences to help create awareness for plastic-related problems and consequences and offered innovative solutions to the local communities.
