Through this new program, young Mexican professionals who grow up in the US and are back in Mexico, have the opportunity to leverage their English proficiency to obtain a certification as English Language Teachers.
The U.S.-Mexico Foundation (USMF) is implementing this program in collaboration with RedNova, with support from the US Embassy in Mexico.
The Program started in September and included all-day intensive classes on Saturdays for three months. In this first generation, 63 participants from the D.F., Puebla and Guadalajara were able to complete successfully all the curriculum, exams and projects, obtaining a certification as English language teachers. See the video and pictures from the December 5th event when participants received their Certificates of Completion and Diplomas:
The USMF thanks the US Embassy in Mexico and RedNova for their partnership and congratulates the Program's participants. The USMF is confident that this Program is not only helping Dreamers reinsert themselves professionally in Mexico, but will also be of significant impact for the Mexican students who will benefit from having a certified English language teacher with full fluency of the English language and deep knowledge of the American culture.
