Mexican Embassies Call on Student Interns

The Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE), the Mexican Youth Institute (Imjuve) and the National Association of Universities and Higher Learning Institutes (ANUIES) agreed to go forward with the Mexican Global Youth Program. The program will allow university students under the age of 30 with an 8.5 grade point average (B average) in a bachelor’s program to complete their social service or complete an internship in a Mexican consulate or embassy.

The program will allow students to grow personally, professionally and academically by experiencing first hand what it means to work in a foreign country“, Sergio Alcocer Martínez de Castro, undersecretary for North America in the SRE, said.

It is necessary to create spaces for youths studying diplomatic and international relations, Berenice Alcalde Castro, sub-director for the Evaluation and Coordination of the IMJUVE, said. The organization will also help the students with stipends, air fare, room and board.

A total of 45 internships will last two months and eight are six-month internships.
