USMF BINATIONAL LEADERS NETWORK
A binational community of individuals interested in collaborating to promote a healthy binational relationship, promoting social inclusion in Mexico, supporting the empowerment of the Mexican immigrant community in the US, and contributing to raising awareness about the contributions of Mexicans in the U.S.
The network started with the Dreamers who visited Mexico during December 2016 and has been expanding since then. Since its launch, the USMF has hosted three events, one of them in Mexico City and the other two in New York City.
The event in Mexico City was organized by the USMF with the participation of executives from FIMPES and Dream in Mexico. The purpose of the event was to host a discussion through which we would help FIMPES and Mexican Universities to define ways to support Dreamers interested in studying college in Mexico. This event triggered multiple subsequent collaborations and binational gathering of Dreamers, among them, though our event, connections were made to initiate Agenda Migrante's initiatives and other initiatives with Tec de Monterrey and Colegio de México.
The other two events took place in New York City in February and June, Ambassador Gómez-Pickering, General Consul of Mexico in New York was present at both events.
On the other hand, within the context of the 4th Dreamers Without Borders delegation visit to Mexico, the USMF started the second year of the USMF English Language Mentoring Program. This program seeks to promote the learning of English among Mexican youth from low-income backgrounds, and secondly, foster a better understanding of Mexican culture among the U.S. citizens with Mexican origin and DACA Dreamers.
In the first year of the program, the Dreamers Without Borders participated with students from the Tecnológico de Monterrey. In the second year, Mexican students from the Inroads de México Foundation also joined the program.
