New York, November 28, 2023] – AIESEC US, the leading youth-run non-profit organization committed to empowering young individuals through transformative international experiences, proudly announces its participation in GlobalTuesday, a worldwide movement that harnesses collective generosity to create lasting impact.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion lie at the heart of AIESEC's mission, and #GivingTuesday serves as a significant platform to amplify our commitment. This year's campaign, Empower Tomorrow's Leaders, is poised to make a profound difference by providing scholarships that foster education equality and empower young leaders from diverse backgrounds.

"These scholarships have a tangible impact on the lives of young people who may otherwise face financial barriers," said Abiseniya Lemma, CEO and President at AIESEC US. "By providing them with the means to engage in the Global Volunteer Exchange program, we're not only supporting their educational journey but also nurturing the next generation of global citizens."
