The Governors Internship Program prepares Mexico's future leaders to face complex challenges in the 21st century. In the last decade, The Washington Center (TWC) has helped create transformational programs for Mexican students from states including Coahuila, Sonora, Campeche, Veracruz, Hidalgo, Morelos, Tamaulipas, Yucatán, Jalisco, Michoacán, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato and Nuevo León. Currently, many of Mexico’s governors provide full funding to students.

 

On Sunday, February 23rd, TWC organized a special meet-and-greet featuring the Governor of Querétaro, José Calzada Rovirosa, who had a chance to sit down one-on-one with many of the students that he was sponsoring from his state.

 

During the event, Governor Rovirosa shared updates and highlights with the students, including new programs he is working on to improve his current constituency as well as initiatives that will create a more promising future for Mexicans in Querétaro. In addition, he took questions asked by the 65 students, internship supervisors and TWC faculty in attendance.

 

Major themes discussed revolved around sustainable development, technology and the importance of increased interaction between Mexican and American young professionals in order to create valuable relationships that transcend cultures.
