Lead a national program to succes
The mission of the Nour Project is to “bridge the gap between the Arab and the Western cultures”. We do this by challenging prejudices, stimulating dialogue and increase mutual
understanding between youth from both cultures. The Nour Project is stationed in Leiden, but runs in all the AIESEC cities, which enables students from all Dutch
universities to do a summer project in the Arab world. As the Vice President of the Nour Project you are responsible for coordinating, organizing and realizing the project. Furthermore, as the vice president you are responsible for the performance of
your team, a group of 11 Nour Managers and the personal and professional development of your team members. This includes coordinating the team, tracking, motivating and supporting its members and providing leadership.
Romée Langenhuijzen, Vice President Nour AIESEC in Leiden, 2017, 2018
“The function of VP Nour is a very special one. Running a national project in 11 cities isn’t always easy, with so many different people and stakeholders, but it’s definitely worth it. Guiding people throughout the whole country, organizing events everywhere and sending people from all over the Netherlands to the Arab region is a unique experience in which I learned to multitask, communicate and delegate.”
