What we do
International Internships and Volunteer Programs
We run international internships and volunteer programs for Japanese university students to intern and volunteer at overseas companies, educational institutions, and NPOs, and vice versa.
Remote International Internships
AIESEC in Japan aims to help students abroad take the first steps of their careers in Japan through remote internships, where students can participate in internships at Japanese companies without leaving their homes.
global youth dialogue
“global youth dialogue” is an online event centered on conversations between youth from various countries. Participants from different countries are paired up, and daily topics are set to stimulate conversations, aimed at promoting a deeper understanding of themselves and the world.
AIESEC was established in 1948 after World War II, where seven youth across seven countries had a dream of building cross-cultural understanding across nations. They hoped to change the world, one person and one internship at a time.
Today, AIESEC has grown into a non-profit organization with more than 30,000 members in over 100 countries and territories.
AIESEC continues to strive to achieve “Peace and Fulfillment of Humankind’s Potential”.
In sum, AIESEC is a global network of people that simply believe that youth leadership is not an option, but our responsibility.
