Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

I am not an AIESEC member. Am I eligible to join Global Volunteer?
Yes! Global Volunteer is open for youth between the age of 18 – 30. Do you want to discover your leadership potential while directly impact the communities in another country? If your answer is yes, you are who we are looking for. Apply now!
During which period can I participate in Global Volunteer?
Our projects (opportunities) require the participants to be abroad for a minimum of 6 weeks. We have projects from May to August and November to February.
If I am only available for 4 weeks only, am I still eligible to participate in the Global Volunteer?
You are not eligible to participate in this situation. We apologize as the minimum duration of an exchange, based on our Exchange Program Policy is 6 weeks. This is also to ensure the best leadership experience for all participants. Furthermore, we can assure you that you will feel 4 weeks is too short to bring a significant impact.
Is food/accommodation provided by the hosting entity?
It depends on the projects (opportunities). Some of the projects provide free food and accommodation, while some other might require you to support yourself. First comes first serve basis. Apply now before it runs out!
Is insurance provided?
Unfortunately, it is not provided by AIESEC in Malaysia, hence you will need to purchase it on your own. We will support in terms of the documentation required.
There is no AIESEC in my friend's university, can I bring them to join along?
Yes of course! You can ask them to apply through www.aiesec.my . Otherwise, feel free to pass their contact to us at youth@aiesec.my and we will contact your friends. 
During the Exchange, am I the only Exchange Participant there?
Majority of our projects (opportunities) are done with a group of participants from other countries and nationalities. The average number of participants in a Global Volunteer project usually ranges from 3 to 20. 
Will I be assisted throughout my exchange period?
Yes. There will be project managers assisting you throughout your exchange abroad. They will welcome you from the airport, escort you to your accommodation, and introduce the local culture to you. Here in Malaysia you will be guided by an AIESEC member after registering at www.aiesec.my/global-volunteer/
My timeline is very tight and I am only free on that 6 weeks. Can I still go?
Yes, it is possible. It will be great to know the specific duration that you are available to go for exchange and we are sure that we can assist you in finding exchange projects within that specific duration.
Does AIESEC sponsor us anything after paying the RM600?
There are no sponsorship provided by AIESEC. However we do have some projects (opportunities) that provide free accommodation or meals. It will helps to save your cost! We are also able to suggest exchange projects & country to you based on your budget.
Can I stay and work at the country, once my project has ended?
You may stay as your wish, however that will be your personal responsibility. AIESEC will not help to facilitate the process once the project is over. All services from AIESEC team in the project will be terminated once the project has ended.
Can I know more about what am I going to do there?
Our projects are catered to support the Sustainable Development Goals from United Nations with different job scopes.
