I am here again to fill you in with some more intriguing information about the amazing opportunities available through AIESEC Colorado.
So you’re sitting there thinking, wow I better find a job for the summer. I am in need of not only a little extra money, but also a fulfilling experience… Well my friends, AIESEC Colorado is a great way to get the best of both worlds.
Through AIESEC, we offer two types of programs to suit your personal wants and needs. Our first option is a volunteer trip that is unpaid, also referred to as a our Global Citizen program. This means that while going abroad, you can participate in a volunteer oriented trip for 3 to 6 weeks that will compensate you with life long memories and a never ending essence of accomplishment. Seems like quite the payment to us here at AIESEC. This is a great program to help you to get involved abroad and make a substantial difference in the world.
Another type of internship that we offer is the Global Talent program. This generally entails a longer time abroad (SCORE!) and an opportunity to work for international companies and earn money for you hard working hours. These internships can last anywhere between 3 to 18 months. This program is a great way to display your skills and become involved with corporations that are ecstatic to have you talent and intelligence to contribute to their teams.

The day before our first school class started, AIESEC Ostrava took all the trainees hiking on Radhošť Mountain. This mountain is particularly special in the Czech Republic because at the top it has a statue of Radegast. Radegast was proclaimed as the Slavic god of hospitality, and the inspiration for one of the most common types of Czech beer. So of course, at the top of this mountain, along with the famous statue, there was a pub where we could consume as much Radegast beer as possible.
Being from Colorado and an avid hiker, I assumed that this was going to be a piece of cake… I was quickly proven wrong! This mountain had one of the steepest inclines I had ever experienced in my life. I was huffing and puffing nearly the entire way up. Since everyone was struggling with the hike, the AIESECers decided that we all needed a little break. So I immediately pulled out my water bottle and proceeded to drink. Myself and the other trainees were quickly laughed at because apparently when you are hiking in the Czech Republic and you stop for a “break” to rehydrate, you are actually stopping to drink alcohol. So to my surprise, all the Czech people pulled out their own bottle of “water” (it was certainly not water in those bottles, if you know what I mean). Then, of course, they wanted all of us trainees to join them in the festivities. This was a ritual that I have certainly never experienced before.
After about four hours of hiking to the top of Radhošť Mountain, we all took a picture with the Radegast statue and then headed to the pub where we relaxed and drank some of his famous beer (personally, I prefer Kozel Czech beer, but Radegast is much more popular here). Along with our beers, we had some great Goulash soup with chleb (Czech for “bread”) and then we headed back down the mountain to end the day.
This was a great way to kick off our internship here in Ostrava. Thanks to all the trainees and AIESEC Ostrava members that attended this awesome day. <a
