BUEN VECINO INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Administered by the United States-Mexico
Cultural and Educational Foundation

BACKGROUND

In 1995, the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce (USMCOC) created the Buen Vecino Internship Program (BVIP), a binational student exchange program aimed to providing students with three unique experiences:

  • An overview of U.S.-Mexico business relations through contact with the USMCOC.

  • Knowledge of a specific industry by serving as unpaid interns in USMCOC corporate member offices.

  • And exposure to another culture by living with a host family.

To date 200 students have participated in the Buen Vecino Internship Program and we are ready to start the session for the year 2002.
