For more than 60 years, AIESEC has given over a million people a platform to develop value-based leadership. People have been transformed as a result of an AIESEC experience. 

 

In order to make these experiences happen, AIESEC first used paper forms and then moved on to internet platforms like Insight and MyAIESEC.net.  However, having grown from 20,000 exchanges in 2006-2011 to over 100,000 exchanges in 2011-2015, AIESEC now needs a more advanced platform that can help it manage this growth and exchange even more young leaders.

 

For the last 3 years, AIESEC International has been working tirelessly to make a technological revolution come to life - a system which is ahead of its time, and will enable AIESEC to impact many more lives in the future. The foundation has been laid with EXPA, AIESEC’s current online platform for exchanges (also known as the Opportunities Portal  (https://opportunities.aiesec.org/programmes ). It is a database of all the global traineeships as well as profiles of every exchange participant looking for a traineeship. The intent now is to expand and improve this platform so that it is so user friendly that someone can find their ideal traineeship and be accepted for it 100% online, without needing the considerable human support that is currently needed for each exchange.

 

You can contribute to this campaign and make thousands of AIESEC stories happen by enabling AIESEC to:

  • Add additional developers to our technology team to develop more features and develop them faster

  • Turn opportunities.aiesec.org into a complete experience hub and make it more user-friendly

  • Create an API so all AIESEC entities can start developing their own customized IT platforms e.g. mobile sites, apps, paypal integration and more

  • Add in-depth data analytics so AIESEC can showcase its global impact based on comprehensive data

  • Connect opportunities.aiesec.org to AlumNet to continue to build a global online alumni community  

  •  

    How can you help/donate?  AI has set up a fundraiser on generosity.com so all the money collected goes directly to EXPA development. This is a global campaign for the new platform and they have a goal of raising $50,000.  On the fundraiser page you will find general information about the campaign as well as the donation option. There is also a video that you can watch with more information: bit.ly/OnOurWay.  To follow the progress on Twitter, go to http://live.myaiesec.net/expa/.
