Experience stories

20 Dec 2018

Randila Kulathilake

“Best experience was learning how to make Cappuccino. It was fascinating to me. I got to know so many new people and I learned so many new things in this country including the culture and their language. I definitely improved my communication skills. I also learned how to appreciate the cultural differences with an open mind.”

punsara kariyawasam

“I was lucky enough to grab such an enchanting and enlightening opportunity by being a part of the project “Discover school’s Winter edition’19” which was conducted by AIESEC local committee, Oradea Romania on last winter. The project was under ‘quality education’. I was assigned to conduct education sessions for the primary school kids, which was intended to raise the Romanian education system by making an impact for 1% of Romanian population.”

gamidu wickramaarachchi

“It’s good and excited. And everything is different here in Italy. Kind of a new experience for me. They are very unique and their thinking pattern is different from us. They are good but that goodness is not like ours. I don’t know how to explain and their bond among family members is very strong. Same like in Sri Lanka”

Duneesha Thathsaranee

“It was an absolute privilege to get this wonderful opportunity,filled with love and joy during my entire volunteer period.”

Ayodya Samali

“I’m so extremely grateful I had the opportunity to travel in Europe. I loved the time I was able to spend there so much so that I didn’t want to come home! Until next time Europe..for now I’ll just think of all the beautiful memories and experiences you gave me.”

3 December 2018

Shehan Hettiarachchi

“Europe is a place that I didn’t experience a lot of culture shock.Of course, many things are different than in Sri Lanka, but nothing too extreme that I felt uncomfortable. Italians are very outgoing, and it’s quite easy to make relationships and it takes a while to make real friends that you can trust.Best experience so far in my life”

1 June 2018

Dhanushi

“I participated in an english teaching project in Vietnam as a global volunteer.I had the best time during my AIESEC exchange.It led me to experience things that I never would have if I was just another tourist.I got to meet some amazing people from all over the world and learn a lot about other cultures.I learnt how to be more independent, how to develop myself and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to go back and do it all over again”

20 June 2016

Shavindri Perera

My indescribable experience in Indonesia taught me the importance of cultural diversity and the variety of ethnic groups within the society. The caring and unforgettable friends I made became my extended family. This ultimately became one of my greatest lifetime opportunities of excitement.

Got questions?

 The youth of the age between 18 – 30.

It depends on your destination country. You can stay in a house with natives, hostel or apartment with other exchange students

You can decide the country depending on the availability of opportunities/projects. However, it’s always better to talk with your AIESEC contact person in Sri Lanka after signing up on the opportunity portal (aiesec.org)

There will always be an AIESEC person in contact with you, both from the country you are in and from Sri Lanka

No

To become a global volunteer with AIESEC, you need to volunteer abroad and step outside your comfort zone

You will be contacted by a local AIESEC member who will do an initial screening before you start applying and there exists an interviewing procedure with the host country. You will be assisted throughout these interviewing processes therefore nothing’s there to be worried about.

We have 8 local offices and each office helps student from in and around their city to go abroad. Our National office is in Maharagama and Global office in Montreal, Canada. click here

Food and accomodation is provided in most of the opportunities, however if not, the subsidy or overall cost is mentioned. It is mentioned in each opportunity.

Yes we do 

Yes, health insurance is mandatory when exchanging with AIESEC to ensure your well-being throughout the trip. 

The standard period for volunteering would be 6 weeks. However, it would always be better to communicate your availability and timeline to your Local AIESEC member as he/she will help you to find a opportunity suitable to you
