"Acompañarte" welcome program
Do you want to make friends from other countries, show people around your city, and practice another language, all this while upgrading your CV?
Join the ACOMPAÑARTE-ITESO program! Welcome exchange students and help them have an incredible experience in Mexico.
If you want to study abroad, this is the perfect opportunity to learn about new places, to find out more about the academic exchange experience, and maybe even practice another language. If you have studied abroad, you know how enriching it is, and how helpful it can be to have someone around to answer your questions about so many new things. Now we're offering you the chance to join a team of mentors, to live an international experience in your own city.
Sign up in the Academic Exchange Office. You can specify your language preference and the number of exchange students you would like to help in this way.
What do I have to do?
Be their contact person here, answer their questions, attend the welcome session, help them learn their way around the city, and if possible, pick them up at the airport when they arrive.
Visit us at the Academic Exchange Office to sign up, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you sign up, you will be the foreign student's mentor for the entire period he or she is here; however, your presence is important especially when they have just arrived.
At the end, you receive a certificate for your participation as a member of the team of mentors, which can strengthen your résumé.
