It will also help stimulate future entrepreneurship and responsible leadership.
FHRD delivered a talk for AIESEC's Global Citizen Program discussing the various aspects of volunteering and how this can be beneficial to one's career. The seminar focused on the importance of volunteering as a means of gaining experience and testing different career paths. This, together with an academic background and lifelong learning, enables today's youth to emerge better prepared in their career.
Mr. Marvin Cuschieri, FHRD CEO, at the end of the seminar pointed out "FHRD is pleased to partner with AIESEC and their Global Citizen program. Both organisations are firm believers of the importance of continuous professional training and lifelong learning. We look forward to continue building our relationship with AIESEC."

The support of organisations such as that of FHRD is needed for AIESEC to achieve its full potential and deliver its promises to develop leadership within the Maltese youth!"
