Charlotte, NC (August 7 2014)
AIESEC is the world’s largest student led organization, with the determination to achieve peace and fulfillment of humankind’s potential. AIESEC has representation in 124 countries. AIESEC United States works for the purpose of providing a platform to students through leadership opportunities, international internships, and provides a global learning environment. It is a space that allows young entrepreneurs to interact and engage with business leaders to open the discussion on the issues today’s youth face on a regional, national, and global scale.
On the 7 August, 2014, the national chapter of AIESEC United States hosted the Youth to Business Forum: Inspire (#Y2BInspire). The theme for the Youth to Business Forum was Youth Empowerment in Local Communities, igniting conversation about how students can not only impact the world, but have a similar impact in their own backyards.
AIESEC US members were introduced to the AIESEC – MY World 2015 partnership and their aim to help boost youth engagement in MY World 2015 and World We Want 2015, further empowering youth voices in their communities. Presently in 33 universities around the country, AIESEC US aims to involve each of these local chapters. From Washington, to Missouri, to New York, and down to Georgia, the goal is not just to collect the voices of the students at these universities, but also to do outreach in the communities that surround their campuses and get the best representation of youth in the United States.
Together, AIESEC US has pledged to collect nearly 25,000 votes in the upcoming semester, encapsulating the American voice for MY World 2015 and The World We Want 2015.
