About Us

We are students from Stanford University and Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) who have decided to form an alliance in order to work together to expand and strengthen the connections between the next generation of leaders in both countries
Our mission

Our mission is to bring together the future leaders of the United States and Mexico.

Our Drive

By providing this group of talented students with valuable opportunities and tools, we aspire for them to become an engine of growth and cross-national collaboration.

Our goal

Our goal is to create network of university student leaders across both countries.

"The relationship between our nations must be defined not by the threats we face but by the prosperity and opportunity we can create together... Just imagine how much the students of our two countries could do together and learn from each other." - President Barack Obama

Our network

Our network is composed of young leaders who are already addressing social, political, economic or technological issues in innovative ways and contribute as student delegates.
