Lucia Armorel Frausto Villegas MCB1: Knowledge and Process:
1. What is iGCDP?
iGCDP means Global Community Development Program for Incoming Exchanges
and provides opportunities for young people to create direct positive impact
through an international volunteer experience abroad.
An AIESEC Exchange Programme is a practical working and learning experience
for the EP to develop their competencies of Global Mind-set, Entrepreneurial
Outlook, Social Responsibility, Emotional Intelligence and Proactive Learning in a
foreign cultural environment. In iGCDP specially the exchange participant will have
the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial and responsible leadership by creating
direct positive impact through an international volunteer experience.
2. Main structure and responsabilities of iGCDP:
We work in teams for national and local teams; the responsabilities for iGCDP are
a) MC VP iGCDP is the leader of iGCDP in the national network and
he/she will develop the strategies, projects and exchange goals for
the area. He/she will decide in which way AIESEC Mexico will impact
on the global network.
b) LC VP iGCDP is the local director for iGCDP, he/she will follow the
instructions for the MC VP iGCDP also be aware and participate in all
the projects that nationally will run.
c) iGCDP members: this members locally will work with the LC VP
iGCDP to fulfill the national goals and impact in exchange
participants life´s raising internships at the NGO´s, national or local
The main function for iGCDP is generate positive impact on the exchange
participants life when they volunteer on the AIESEC exchanges for projects or
NGO´s. But how can we do it?, the iGCDP team will work creating projects where
the EPs can volunteer and putting to the test their professional knowledge.
In this case all the participants will gain professional experience before they
graduate, increase their resume and making attractive their resume for the
companies but also the team that raise the project, find the exchange participant,
help with Inmigrational status and the reception, servicing also gaing experience
thats the beauty of iGCDP everybody learn something.
Raising represents the ultimate beginning of the ICX flow. During the raising
process you want to provide yourself with TNs that you can match later. Without
raising, thus no TNs, no matching, no matching no realizing. All subsequent
process steps are therefore worthless when the first process step is bad
performing. First of all you might want to sort companies in your territory with
regard to the branch/ sector/ industry. This will emphasize the creation of individual
unique selling points. In different sectors different motives exist to hire an EP from
abroad, fortunatelly AIESEC Mexico often create national projects like My
Language Buddy, Sharing Languages or Impacting in this case we can´t reach the
NGOs but also is another internship taker.
Matching is finding on myaiesec.net a suitable exchange participant that fulfill all
the job descriptions that the project or NGOs is searching for, are many ways to
find this EPs that will be describe in other manuals. And realized internships is
