Call for Spanish-speaking college students to apply for a life-changing service learning summer program in Mexico: “El Sueño Mexicano”
The US-Mexico Foundation (USMF), Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs (SRE), Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME) and the Mexican National Commission for the Development of Indigenous Peoples (CDI), cordially invite you to collaborate as an intern in the initiative: El Sueño Mexicano 2018
“El Sueño Mexicano” is a unique binational initiative that seeks to provide American Spanish-speaking college students, highly interested in promoting the binational relationship between Mexico and the US, through a 4-week summer internship in Mexico. Candidates interested in participating in the program will have to apply to attend one of 6 possible locations in Ecotourism Projects in indigenous communities in Mexico (Puebla, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán). Selected students will participate in specific projects that will provide Mexican indigenous small business owners with advice on business aspects such as marketing, operations, production, administration, and website development, among others.
El Sueño Mexicano will provide Mexican indigenous communities with invaluable resources while at the same time offer American students the opportunity to engage with Mexico’s rich culture. Program participants will return to the US with a better understanding and appreciation for Mexico and become ambassadors of good faith of Mexico in the US.
The program will run from July 8th to August 9th, 2018. Application requirements, program benefits and participant responsibilities can be found at: http://bit.ly/ApplicationSuenoMx
. Note: The deadline to apply is May 30th. Due to initiative's purposes, only applicants who can participate in the initiative's entire agenda will be considered.
